The Chutney Club fund-raising raffle of last year continues to keep giving, with a recent loan to a small dairy in Georgia. Kiva has been a great investment, as funds continue to be re-lent to people in need across the world. All are small loans to encourage local business ventures, enabling people to establish viable, sustainable means of living.
In choosing where to lend I have mainly focused on food production and agriculture as it is relevant to what we do, and local food production is important to everyone, even those who can currently buy whatever they like from mega supermarket chains and masterchef it into gourmet glory every night of the week.
Speaking of food production, here are my baby peas. Peace.
