Loans that Change Lives

A friend recently told me about Kiva. She received a gift certificate for Kiva from a friend. The gift certificate allows you to go through the website, choose a business to support in a developing country. And over 6-12 months you will receive newsletters and updates about this business, and when that time is over you will receive your loan money back. Either you can take it back, or invest it in another business. Genius!

It's more than gift certificates, anyone can go on and "loan" money to a business.
