Last november we decided to support the working poor by making a 1 dollar loan with Kiva.org for each game sold on our website.
Here a little report of last months activities.
You can follow us on our Kiva Lending Page.

Mukasa Grace is the leader of Nkokonjeru Model One in Uganda. She is 40 years old and married with 6 children. She has a poultry farm business where she keeps chicken both for meat and for egg. She has spent 8 years in the same business and as a result, she has been able to own an organized home. She also has cows that she milks to pay fees for her children. Grace needs a loan to be able to buy more feed in bulk for her chickens since buying in small quantities is costly due to transport fees. Frogames lends $50 december the 13th, 2008.
