MicroLoan wishes to thank them, and all their generous sponsors for their efforts. More than $8,000 has been raised which is equivalent to more than 100 new loans which affect the lives of more than 500 people. Thx guys.
This is what Peter had to say of the experience:
“Well, we are back home after completing our challenge viz. making it to the summit. This is the toughest thing I have ever done in my life – both a massive physical and mental challenge!
We had a fantastic company in Team Kilimanjaro to get us to the top and back – a most professional group of guides and porters, and if there were three other things critical to making it to the top, they were acclimatization climbs most days (climb high, sleep low), eating more food than we thought we needed, and drinking a minimum of 3 litres of water per day. For us this pretty much kept altitude sickness at bay.
It was pretty amazing on one day to see the snow-capped peak of Mount Kenya, at a distance of 325km from where we were on the side of Kilimanjaro!”
