April 07, 2007 03:56 PM PDTThis mortgage-gone-bad story is getting attention across the US as it applies to borrowers everywhere. According to an article in the Washington Post, Susan and Kevin Andrews of Cedarburg, Wisconsin refinanced their home in 2004 into what was explained - and reportedly documented - to be a 1.95% interest rate that was to be fixed for five years. It was not. The Andrews family decided to fight and eventually took the lender - Chevy Chase Bank - to court and WON, setting the table for a class action lawsuit by thousands of borrowers in the same boat. This is their story - and their caution - to the listeners of Your Home-Your Money as related in this excellent live interview.

Kiva has receive accolades throughout the world from organizations including NPR, the New York Times, the BBC, PBS, ABC News, Business Week, the Wall Street Journal, CNN, The Village Voice, and the general blogosphere. The following quotes are from the Kiva website. Vinod Khosla, founding CEO of Sun Microsystems and a partner at the venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins, has called microlending "one of the most important economic phenomena since the advent of capitalism and Adam Smith." The New York Times, in its article Web-Based Microfinancing, December 10, 2006 said, “At Kiva.org, a schoolteacher in Kansas can partner with an expert seamstress in countries like Kenya, Mexico and Ecuador to jump-start a tailor shop.” “Friends and neighbors have been lending one another money forever, but as the Web makes virtual neighbors of strangers, Kiva, which is Swahili for ‘agreement’ or ‘unity,’ is harnessing the power of social networking to support micro-enterprise in the developing world,” said Business Week in A Little Money Goes a Long Way, July 31, 2006. Kiva is “…revolutionizing how donors and lenders in the US are connecting with small entrepreneurs in developing countries,” commented BBC News, March 1, 2006. About Kiva (from Kiva’s website) Kiva lets you connect with and loan money to unique small businesses in the developing world. By choosing a business on Kiva.org, you can "sponsor a business" and help the world's working poor make great strides towards economic independence. Throughout the course of the loan (usually 6-12 months), you can receive email journal updates from the business you've sponsored. As loans are repaid, you get your loan money back. Kiva partners with existing microfinance institutions. In doing so, we gain access to outstanding entrepreneurs from impoverished communities world-wide. Our partners are experts in choosing qualified borrowers. That said, they are usually short on funds. Through Kiva.org, our partners upload their borrower profiles directly to the site so you can lend to them.
