A banner to the extremely worthwhile and totally awesome Kiva.org to the sidebar. If you have always wondered what microfinance was all about, check this out. Similar to Prosper, you can loan money to individuals in developing countries and even keep in touch with them to learn how their business is developing over the course of the 6 to 12 month loan.

It’s an incredible model, applying business returns and principles to development work.
