Kiva is an easy, effective way to put $25 to amazing use to help total strangers in other countries.
A lot of research has shown the power and effectiveness that micro-financing/loans have compared to charity hand-outs. Kiva loans allow individuals & groups to start and/or expand their businesses to strengthen their own ability to support themselves and their families.
The great thing, is that one Kiva loan can just keep going & going! Because your loan is paid back, once it’s paid back you can choose someone else to loan the amount to.
