Freddy's famous!

Kiva Entrepreneur Freddy Antonio Castillo Luna became famous over the weekend when TIME columnist Joel Stein wrote about taking his business support to the next level.

I'm not sure that Joel's cupcakes will take off in Nicaragua, but you can read about the venture here.

Special thanks to Kiva Fellow Whitney who translated the phone conversation on the ground in Nicaragua, Kiva Field Partner AFODENIC who is facilitating this loan on the ground and helped us track down Freddy, and of course to Freddy who clearly demonstrates the business savvy of entrepreneurs using microloans to build businesses.
