We got this email today from our agency:

"Le informo que su solicitud y documentos fueron presentados al ICBF el martes. Espero que podamos tener noticias de aprobación a su solicitud en unos 2-3 meses"

OMG! Can you believe that??? Wait.. I guess I have to translate that:

"Your application and documents were introduced to the ICBF on Tuesday. I hope we can have news about the approval of your document in around 2-3 months"

Kiva - loans that change lives 

I wanted to let you know about Kiva (, a non-profit that allows you to lend as little as $25 to a specific low-income entrepreneur in the developing world.

You choose who to lend to - whether a baker in Afghanistan, a goat herder in Uganda, a farmer in Peru, a restaurateur in Cambodia, or a tailor in Iraq - and as they repay their loan, you get your money back. It’s a powerful and sustainable way to empower someone right now to lift themselves out of poverty.

It is beautiful to be part of a project like this, and to know that so little can make a HUGE impact in others life.

Think about it ;-)
