Curious Business– Kiva.org

Kiva.Org has been called “the "hottest non-profit on the planet" by FORTUNE magazine. Kiva is a non-profit microfinance organization that supplies thousands of budding entrepreneurs in the poorest areas of the world with loans. How does that work?  The loans are provided by anyone wanting to lend their money out wanting to make a difference. And because of Kiva over 500,000 entrepreneurs have been provided with almost 200million dollars worth of loans.

My hat goes off to Kiva.org and everybody involved with it for creating a system of finance that provides opportunity for those who wouldn’t normally have the chance.
