Default Make a Loan

Hear is a site where you can offer very small money loans to foreigners.

You might lose your money. You will NOT get any return.

But you might do a good thing.

NO risk except the money you put up.

A friend sent me this link... He says he has NOT lost a dime and he started at $75 and is now up to $500 in his account. (he and his kids add money and decide who gets it).

Unfortunately it is ALL to foreign countries. NO USA accounts.

For those that don't care about a little money but want to try to make a difference=liberals with guilt.

Heck, Small amounts would make a difference to my family. Can't say I could repay a loan but would show receipts for responsible use of money.

Unable to work in any of my fields of know how since a roll over crash summer of '07, we have managed to scrape by on under $12k per year (rent is $800 month). We haven't run A/c nor furnace since the crash. I manage heat on a cord and a half per winter in wood.

There are families right here in our area that could, responsibly, utilize help that is not available to everyone through the public dole.

I know we are not the only family in similar position. I am very lucky to have such a fiscally responsible wife who stretch a penny into 50' feet of wire...

We have 2 adult kids, one is working a part time job (very few hours) basically to gas his truck. His girlfriend lives with us as well, with her 9 month old... The baby needs are taken care of with her fast food restaurant job (Dang formula and diapers sure went up since mine were babies)...
My Daughter was working as a live in nanny for way less than the job was worth to "help out" that parent... But after several months of that, she realized that the full time commitment was more than a 19 year old that has been chaste needed to endure...

If she had a reliable vehicle, she could seek work out side Defuniak which is lacking in bonafide employers.

same boat here. 3 kids at home and nobody hiring. Unemployment has been cancelled at the first of Decmeber. In school now to try and get into a career that may have demand (Nursing) The reason unemployment stopped is beacuse the governement says they have no money for it. But they have millions to send Obama and a fleet of ships over seas. Money for aide to other countries. Money to finance a war.

Unemployment is at it's highest since the great depression. There are 6 applicants for every job right now. It is going to get worse before it gets better. With no unemployment there will be less spending. That will lead to more businesses shutting down and more unemployed people.

If your going to throw money away, why do it to a foriegn country. There are plenty of Americans in need right now.
