Microfinance

Posted in New by Harsha on April 4, 2008

Microfinacing is a great way for people like me who don’t have a lot of money, to spend small amounts and help people be productive. Kiva.org is a great example and CNN has a nice story on it. While lifting someone out of poverty is a great thing, my primary motive to help would be to enable some be productive and entrepreneurial as I have a need for both myself.

On the website, there is a way to promote entrepreneurs thru a link that can be emailed around or posted. I figured this person, Chingul Fathulloeva of Yavan who has raised only 5% of the total money she needs to “purchase supplies for her work (beads, thread and material)” could be a start.

Feel free to reach out to Kiva directly and here is the CNN article.
