Entrepreneurs Helping Entrepreneurs

by Bryn Youngblut on September 24, 2009

I remember hearing about Kiva a long time ago but never really decided to find out more about it, until recently. I was skimming over Dan Martell’s blog who I recently met at Thinktank09 and saw his profile link for Kiva.

I started looking around the Kiva site and thought how awesome it was, being able to help out fellow entrepreneurs all over the world with the click of a mouse.

So I created my own Kiva profile today and started reading peoples requests for loans. I’ve already contributed to about 20 loans so far today, some I found really intriguing.

It’s too bad they don’t translate the ones not in English because it’s hard to donate when I can’t read what they need the money for.

If you’re a fellow entrepreneur do your part and help out others who are less fortunate than us, trust me it feels great!

You should post some of the profiles of your favorites here.

How do you know these people are real and not some nigerian scam artist? Are the applicants verified somehow?

Kiva is a very reputable charity that has been doing this for years…just do some research on them if you’re worried.

Nice. I’d seen the site before but never actually donated, the idea is pretty cool though. I’ll check it out again, thanks for reminding me.

Someone needs to get it poppin’ for the US! Kiva is cool and all, but anyone who donates even a dime to any of those entrepreneurs needs to keep his f@$kin’ mouth shut about the US financial situation.

It starts @ home b!tches!

I actually heard about Kiva from an ex and I believe she knows the person who founded it. I used to support her in helping Kiva out and I think she still does.

I help out with stuff closer to home and eventually I’ll expand out sometime.
