In 2011 we won an award for Best New Community Project. We enable people without access to traditional banks (including many women) to expand their businesses, educate their children, save for the future and raise themselves out of poverty. Through Kiva, a non-profit organisation working with microfinance institutions, you choose a borrower to support with a loan of just $5 via Kiva Zip or $25 via Kiva. Similar loans by other lenders are combined until the required total is reached. As your money is repaid (often in monthly instalments), you can withdraw it or lend it to someone else. Money that is loaned over and over again does more good than a one-time donation. Join 'Genealogists for Families' - together we are making a difference!

Prize for a New Team Member

Last month I donated a $25 Kiva card as a Recruiter's Reward. It was won by Peter, who very generously asked me to give it to someone else in another competition or prize draw.

Right now the 'Genealogists for Families' lending team on Kiva has 132 members. I have chosen a number (x) between 133 and 145. When the xth person joins our team and makes a loan, he or she will be awarded the $25 Kiva card with which to make an additional loan.

Invite your family and friends to join our team, and tell them that if they do so soon they may win the Kiva card! They can join via this link: www.kiva.org/team/genealogists.

To be eligible, you must have made a loan and your name must appear on the team members list. If you are there as Anonymous, you can change that setting on your Lender Page.

The winner will be announced here, and I will also send a message via Kiva. The prize must be claimed within one month of the date of that announcement, otherwise it will be issued to someone else in a second prize draw.
