Kiva - loans that change lives

I really believe that the best way to help people and to reduce poverty is to promote small businesses. Micro Lending has proven to be one of the most successful ways to help those at the bottom of the economic ladder. There are great organizations around the world making these micro loans to local people. KIVA is really a great idea! It allows anyone to make small loans to someone in need. Take a look at their website.
