Welcome to the first round of voting for the 2010 KivaFriends Calendar.  There are 6 polls (one for each country) – remember to vote in each one.

You have 2 votes in this poll, one male and one female

Below are links to each  entrepreneurs' profile and a thumbnail.  **You are voting on the thumbnail NOT the profile picture.  The thumbnails now link to full size pictures.

The winners of each country will go to the calendar with the runner up on to the next round of voting*. (Results will be available after the poll has ended).

Maria Luisa Rosales García


Rosario Cristina Rosales Rosales


Rosalinda Matea Rosales Rosales


Florinda Agustina Garcia Lopez


Juan Pedro Guinea Puac


*I will not vote, but reserve the right to vote in a tie

I thought it might be interesting to point out that in the second photo of Maria Luisa Rosales García, she is putting her mark (fingerprint) on what I presume to be her loan-repayment book.  This might be a way to highlight the dignity of the lending and repayment process.

Agreed Diane!  That photo caught my attention when I was looking in the gallery the first time around.  The only reason I voted for Rosario is the closeup of her handiwork.  If we are short some lender photos (less than 12 or 12 different countries) I would like to see the photo of Maria included (if she does not win) because of the very reason you point out.  It would be better than a "non-photo" fill in (IMO).

First, Thank you so much for all the work you have done.  Thumbs Up

Now I need help, because it looks like both Rosalinda and Florinda have the same calendar photo.  Are these meant to be two different pictures-but of the same person?  Or?

I could also point people's attention to the incredibly beautiful handmade clothing worn by both Maria Luisa and the loan officer in their photo....  Wink
(Too bad we can't see more of the little girl holding Maria Luisa's arm, whose face is hidden by the loan book....)

I already pointed that out to Charmaine in a PM, Dan, she will probably fix it soon.

You can see pictures of Florinda in Kiva's Image Gallery (http://www.kiva.org/about/imagegallery/) - but I do not know which one of them is the one we vote on.

Best wishes,
Wolfgang.

Sorry about the double up photo.  It is now corrected, Florinda is a photo of her and her baby.  Must have got a little overzealous with the paste button last night, adding links to all the photos!
