Today, in an effort to raise $100,000 to support small business owners in developing countries, Relevant Magazine will contribute the first $10 to your World Vision Micro microloan donation. Small microloans allow entrepreneurs in impoverished areas to grow their businesses; after it is paid, the loan is provided to another worthy entrepreneur within the same community, creating a cycle that can change lives. Please consider donating to an incredible cause!
I chose to support Sonia, a 20-year-old mother of two from Tetela, Mexico, who needs a loan of $550 to buy ingredients for her snack business. (Of course I contributed to someone who makes empanadas, fried bananas, gorditas, tortas and tamales!) Before you donate, you can get to know Sonia and the other entrepreneurs here.
