New Year, New Loans.
This morning Team Synchro have been re lending some of our Kiva credit. We have managed to lend to 3 people and complete the amounts they needed, they now have the full loan amount they need and can use it.
Here is who we have helped via Kiva ..
Rebecca is widowed with 4 children, 3 are still in school. She earns a living by collecting money from her rentals and she is also a service person in the Ugandan Army.
She is borrowing 1,500,000 UGX from UGAFODE Microfinance to buy construction materials from the city in order to renovate her rentals because she wants to increase on the incomes from them.
She is very hard-working and has been solely educating all her children for almost 10 years when her husband died and the relatives were not willing to help her out.
She is working tirelessly towards the attainment of her dream of seeing that all the children graduate. Thank you for enabling her journey to achieve her dream.
Geoffrey is happily married and blessed with 2 beautiful children. He is a transport operator, a job he does cheerfully with the help of his motorcycle.
In order to improve the efficiency of his business and reduce maintenance costs, he has proposed to buy a new motorcycle and is humbly requesting a loan.
He will use his profits to help him settle his loan, continue supporting his business, and educate his children.

Howdy once again from Texas where it’s blazing hot, so hot they are melting iron in the parking lot and the local pancake house is cooking eggs on the hoods of cars! What the heck, one wouldn’t expect anything else in Texas this time of the year other than lack of rain and excessive heat. Myself, I’ll take the heat over the cold anytime as we have chilled air in Texas!
SYNCHRO ERP’s global implementation manager was recently flying from Seattle to Newark and I tracked the flight using the wonders of the Wild West Web. Sometimes we just need to sit back and reflect on all the wonders of what the internet has brought to us. Not that long ago, if one wanted a flight status; the only option was to call the airline. Today, with all of the interconnectivity of the “dots” everything is seemingly in real time.
A group of us occasionally try and find a restaurant we have not eaten at before.
Two years ago whilst visiting a small village ( Alfanate in Southern Spain) that was having its cherry festival – Its major income earning crop – I saw an old Inn.
