Happy Fourth of July!
There's no better day than Independence Day to think about the priviledges we have being Americans. Here's a great video featuring two American Kiva Zip borrower's, Garrick and Diane, talking about how their Kiva loans have enabled them to achieve the "American Dream."
If you'd like to continue helping Garrick & Diane's achieve their American Dream, loan to them today!
And a special thanks to Damian Hudson for putting this awesome video together:)
