- MAPS would like to share with you the big milestone that we have just reached! We have just made our 30th loan! We are thrilled, and the loan has marked $800 in total of loans in our two year tenure! The average Kiva user only makes eight loans and an average of $262.19 worth in loans, so MAPS would like to thank all who have bought a cupcake or donated to our cause for this accomplishment! ♔
- The recipient of the 30th MAPS loan also is special to our cause. As you may know, MAPS is fundraising to build a well in Africa in order to address the water crisis. This is exactly what Emma Marte is trying to accomplish as well. Emma asked for a loan from Kiva so that she could expand her purified drinking water business. Our loan also made her reach her $1,075 goal. This is Emma’s second loan with Kiva, and she hopes that they will expand her income and improve her quality of life.
- Among other MAPS news, we had a successful cupcake sale during the Miss Hall’s Theater Ensemble production of The Wiz, on February 24 and 25. We will keep you posted for more updates on our Instagram sale, which is coming soon!
