I know that title is a bit confusing, but it's a really cool opportunity.
Have you ever heard of micro loans? They are small loans that when put together with other small loans create enough capital for someone in an impoverished area of the world to start or sustain a business. Then from the profits of that business they pay back that loan and you are able to loan it again to someone else who needs it. Cool idea, huh?
Right now you can participate for FREE at Kiva! An incredible, anonymous donor has donated FREE $25 sponsorships so you can try out the process and see how it works. The $25 isn't for you and you can't cash it out, but you can choose where to invest it and then track the success of those individuals.
Go over and check it out! It's a wee bit addicting.
