A Way to Support Small Farmers Worldwide: Kiva

Small businesses worldwide can benefit greatly from small loans. That's great! . . .except that for ordinary folk, there is no way to make a small loan to someone who needs it. Until now!

This California-based company, Kiva, allows ordinary folks to make loans as small as $25 to small-business owners around the world. The loans are interest-free, and in the (likely) event that you get your money back, you can choose to re-invest it. This sounds like a great alternative to making donations.
The even offer gift cirtificates!
