Help fighting poverty (Luxembourg)
I wanted to let you know about Kiva ( Protected content ), a non-profit that allows you to lend as little as $25 to a specific low-income entrepreneur across the globe. You choose who to lend to - whether a baker in Afghanistan, a goat herder in Uganda, a farmer in Peru, a restaurateur in Cambodia, or a tailor in Iraq - and as they repay their loan, you get your money back. It's a powerful and sustainable way to empower someone right now to lift themselves out of poverty. Check it out!
With just $ Protected content is really not a lot for us - you can help change a life.
Kiva has also received wide acclaim from the blogosphere, mainstream media (incl. NPR, BBC, CNN, Wall Street Journal) and development experts. The Kiva website has fostered cross-cultural relationships and provided thousands of families with small loans and fresh hope for a sustainable livelihood.
