Quick Note re: Guatemala

For several months I looked for other loans on Kiva for entrepreneurs in Guatemala, but there was a bit of a lull in originations there. (The window at the right links to Kiva's homepage where you can search by country.) I found one last month and tonight I found that there are numerous opportunities to lend to individuals and small groups in Guatemala. I now have three loans out. How could I resist helping those who gave us our beautiful gem?

(It's whipped cream....and that's her mom, not me!)

If you have any interest at all, please take a look at and see if any of the stories speak to you. Only takes $25 to start, and you get the money back!


  1. Guatemala is my next big trip destination (together with Mexico and Belize, I live in the UK and with four weeks holiday a year I need to bundle up my destinations)

    I'm definitely going to check out Kiva, it sounds like a right thing to do

  2. This is a great post. I must remember to post about Kiva one of these days.
