Thanksgiving Giving


Happy Thanksgiving to all. Today I call again for the readers of "SCREAMING at the TV!" to join Team SCREAM! at KIVA.

Let us give thanks by giving to those who are trying to improve their lot in life. Those making an effort to make a difference in their communities, neighborhoods and families. Loans at Team SCREAM! (a lending team at KIVA.ORG microfinancing ) can be as little as $25.00 (A burger and fries)

Novembers Team SCREAM! KIVA Loan:

Mukisa women’s group in Jinja. Jinja lies in the south east of Uganda, 54 miles northeast of the capital, Kampala. It is located on the shores of Lake Victoria.

Mukisa women's group is a "Group" loan. In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a group of individuals bound by a group guarantee. Under this arrangement, each member of the group supports one another and is responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members if someone is delinquent or defaults.

The person I have chosen from this group for this month is: Fatumah. Fatuma is a tailor with a business of making ladies’ wear, childen's and men’s clothes of all kinds.

The repayment terms of this loan is 3 months.

Join Team SCREAM! today and give thanks by giving hope.

Peace from a Grumpy Old Man.

Troy, I have to admit KIVA is one I have not looked at. I will do it today and probably post about them. I am right now in the thick of ADRA. I think they are doing an awesome job. Their gift catalog is awesome.
