Yugster.com, the daily deal website, continues to sustain its Good Samaritan status, by loaning to Kiva. Yugster is accustomed to regularly donating to charities. The websites visitors are able to register to Yugster.com for free, becoming members. Through a vote, members help determine which charity the Yugster community will support that month. The winning charity chosen receives fifty percent (50%) of gross revenue acquired each month from the portal.
In addition to voting for charities, the Yugster members will now also vote to determine which unique entrepreneurs will receive a loan through Kiva. Kiva is the world's first person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals and organizations to lend directly to unique entrepreneurs in the developing world. To initiate participation with the organization, the Yugster team chose the first set of entrepreneurs to receive the loan.
Chosen entrepreneurs included Margarita Flores Figueroa of El Salvador, a single mother struggling to provide for her daughter and chosen business owner Albert Djonga of the Odette Musimbongo Group located in Kinshasa. Margarita will now receive a loan to buy new merchandise and earn new income, in order to realize her dream of opening a small permanent stand where she can sell her products. Albert currently owns a roadside pharmacy and boutique and will now have help to make his dream of opening a clinic in his area a reality.
"Everybody wins," said Mark Soberman, President of Yugster.com. "Members are assured that they are receiving the best prices possible, and it allows us all to do a little good."
