As travelers, we have seen first hand how a small loan can transform someone's life. Join with other in the TravelBlog community to help fund these small loans.
The Travel Blog Community has started a lending team on Kiva. Kiva works with micro-finance institutions on five continents to provide loans to people without access to traditional banking systems. One hundred percent of your loan is sent to these micro-finance institutions, which are called Field Partners, who administer the loans in the field.
Kiva relies on a world wide network of over 450 volunteers who work with our Field Partners, edit and translate borrower stories, and ensure the smooth operation of countless other Kiva programs. Please go to http://www.kiva.org/team/travelblog_community
to join the Travel Blog Community team to make a big impact with a small loan.

I'm just responding here to confirm that TravelBlog did approve Karen's use of the TravelBlog Community Logo as well as visible support in sharing the details in the forums and her blogs.
Best of Luck! :-)
