I really like this concept. This evening I heard about Kiva whilst listening to Triple J and have already signed up to contribute. Kiva is a website through which you can loan money to a specific entrepreneur in a developing country. I like this analogy:
"Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will feed every day. Loan him money for a boat and he will have a fishing business." Pretty cool.
You can loan as little as $25, but given that you can give the money straight from your paypal account it's a no brainer to loan a little bit more. And it gives you that feel good feeling, hey?
Go on, doooo it!
