Jim, This Kiva thing fascinates me,  Is there anyway to make a one time donation via Pay-Pal?  I don't care for a follow up, payback or a progress report..just to know that the money will be used to help someone is sufficient.
I bought a goat a couple of years ago for some family in Cameroon Africa thru a local church here.. and that seemed to be well received.
I will need an email address and a phone number for the pay pal account plus the ability for the charity to accept Pay-Pal.
Thanks KensanIV

Sorry Kensan, I don't think they take donations that go to those looking for a loan.  KIVA certainly will accept your money, but I don't think thats what you meant.
I do know what you meant.  So far I have $500 invested in loans through Kiva. Most are $25 loans, some $50 loan and one $100 loan.  There have been many times I wanted to say "just keep it, I don't need it back",  but, a loan is a loan. 
Right now I have 20 loans being repaid at a dollar at a time. Every 2 weeks or so I accumulate $25 from those repaying which I can quickly turn around and loan out again to someone else.  Sometimes I just let it accumulate, then I will go back on a re-loan to a bunch of people, and probably add another $25 or $50 to it if I can afford it.  Its habit forming.  :- )
