I have been reading about microloans, small monetary loans to struggling small business owners across the globe. With a small donation of $25 (or more), you can help a farmer or clothing maker, etc. get on their feet and become self-sufficient when they normally wouldn't have a chance qualifying for a loan in their own country.
As a small business owner myself, I thought it would be great to give it a try. Kiva.org, a non-profit based in San Francisco, has gotten good press, so I signed up today.
I choose to help Gloria, a clothing seller in Peru.
