Kiva


Whenever I accumulate enough to make a reloan on KIVA, I involve the learners in my classroom. They choose to whom we should loan and IM my the name. I have been doing this since Christmas 2007. Microloans through KIVA go around traditional banks. With the motive of alleviating poverty, KIVA has seen explosive growth. Thus far 596,058 have loaned $103,042,085 in 187 countries.
