Chocolopolis + Kiva, Part 2


We just accumulated enough change in our unofficial tip jar to make another microloan through Kiva!   Last time we funded a fudge maker in Nicaragua; Juana used the loan to expand her production facilities and has already started to make repayments. 

This time we chose Elizabeth, a cacao farmer in Peru who will use her loan to buy more cacao plants. What could be more perfect?

If you're one of those who has told us to "keep the change," we hope that you'll approve of our choice.  Thanks so much for helping us to help others.

And go, Elizabeth, go!

Brilliant idea to fund Kiva loans with your tip jar.
