Small loans for big help

I'm copying this from Kiva site as I don't feel entitled to communicate other people's addies. You can loan from US$ 25.00. A good way to share.

Kiva is at http://www.kiva.org/app.php

"I just made a loan to someone in the developing world using a revolutionary new website called Kiva.

"You can go to Kiva's website and lend to someone in the developing world who needs a loan for their business - like raising goats, selling vegetables at market or making bricks. Each loan has a picture of the entrepreneur, a description of their business and how they plan to use the loan so you know exactly how your money is being spent - and you get updates letting you know how the entrepreneur is going.

"The best part is, when the entrepreneur pays back their loan you get your money back - and Kiva's loans are managed by microfinance institutions on the ground who have a lot of experience doing this, so you can trust that your money is being handled responsibly."
