Giving: The Butterfly Effect - Update (March 2011)

You may recall my recent foray into micro-loaning through Kiva, thanks to a $25 gift card I received from a friend for Christmas.  I settled on Herbart Mwesigwa as my first loan recipient, as he wanted $650 to help provide medicine through his clinic in Uganda.  Anyway, Dr. Mwesigwa has already repaid $2.08 in March and is scheduled to repay another $2.08 in about a week.  It's nice to know that Ugandans have more access to medicine through Dr. Mwesigwa.  My $25 isn't scheduled to be repaid in full until early next year, but I'm already eager to recirculate it!
