Want to loan someone $25 with someone else’s money? Now’s your chance!
We rarely publicize non-pet causes, but we trust this may be of as much interest to you as it is to us.
Kiva is an non-profit organization based in San Francisco that makes micro loans to worthy causes and entrepreneurs across the globe. A $25 loan can make a huge difference to someone struggling to start a business or fund an idea in a third world country.
For the next few weeks, Kiva is offering to fund $25 micro loans for new members. Membership is free.
If you join Kiva now, they will “give” you $25 to use for your first loan. Once you’ve registered, you can use this link to donate $25 of Kiva’s money to the cause of your choice.
You are under no obligation to continue to offer any further loans. But once you’ve been through the vast array of choices, perhaps Kiva can serve as a source of gifts or inspiration to you for future use.
