We help a woman from South Sudan educate her seven kids

It's that time of the month again. LOVE IT!

This is our 22nd loan through KIVA.

The money from our previous loans has started rolling back in. This month we're giving a hand (not a hand out) to Anna from South Sudan. Anna was after $375 to help her to purchase sugar to on-sell at a stall to make money to educate her kids. We can take so much for advantage in Australia because we really are the lucky country - our kids are guaranteed an education. We're excited about helping Anna give her kids an education.

"Anna is a 42-year-old married woman with seven children, six of whom are in school. She has had a business selling food from a stall in Kator, South Sudan for five years.

Anna is requesting this loan through BRAC South Sudan to purchase sugar. She will use her extra income from this loan to pay school fees."

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
