If you’re in the world improvement business, you’ve probably already heard about “microcredits” – money lent to people that banks rather wouldn’t call “customers”. Because they are poor. Most often, they are poor because they can’t get credit. That doesn’t allow them to buy something like a cow or a mule or some basic tools to start a business. We’re not talking about a lot of money, some of these people just need a few dollars. $100 can make a lot of difference.
Kiva is working on changing this. Take $115 from your Paypal account and help four projects ($25 each and $15 for Kiva itself) to make the world a better place.
