Kiva is an online service connecting you to families in developing countries. Every dollar you lend go directly to the entrepreneurs - no intermediaries. When the family return the principal, you could re-lend again. It is a more sustainable way of building infrastructure and know-how in developing countries. It's social change from the inside-out by empowering the locals.
