New Microfinancing Opportunities at Kiva
A few months ago we wrote a post about a microfinancing web site called Kiva that does peer-to-peer lending over the internet. Kiva got a lot of publicity, and the owners said it was a tremendous help in raising money to fund entrepreneurs in developing countries. Now Kiva has added some new businesses to their site.They've got around 20 businesses from three different continents — everything from a Bulgarian chokeberry farmer, to a Palestinian carpenter, to a group of Senegalese women using solar cookers for seafood preparation. You can find more details on their web site.
