put some sugar in that tea (micro loans)

January 1, 1970 | By |

this is a great idea: kiva raises micro-loans – down to as little as $25 – for starting businesses in developing countries. (the money seems to go straight into the loan, not into funding the organization overhead.)

When interviewing entrepreneurs about their standard of living, one simple question she would ask was, “Can you afford to take sugar with your tea?”
the worst case is that the business can’t make it – the you donated a tiny amount of money and helped some families get by for another few months. either way, it’s a win-win. but as i said, that’s the worst case. usually you should get your money back after a year or so, plus a little interest.

the cool thing, though, is that you can actually see quite detailed where your money goes, and how it helps an east african entrepreneur set up his shop and maybe lift his family out of absolute poverty.

read the about, it’s worth it.

old&neat: get out those 5S again.

SEIRI: create tidyness. Throw away all unused stuff, file away the rest.
SEITON: keep evertything at the right place. Keep the tools you need accessible, hide materials you don’t need regularly.
SEISO: keep your (work-)space clean, remove all traces from the previous task before starting the next.
SEIKETSU: develop a personal sense for organizing your things. Develop routines, optimize your system according to your needs.
SHITSUKE: stay disciplined doing the above, make it a habit and permanent practice.
