Micro-lending is growing fast in more ways than one.
As a phenomenon, and in the way it synergizes and energizes small businesses with hope and opportunity.
Kiva.org offers assistance to businesses, agriculture, families, and others — encouraging supporters to “recycle” their repaid loans (about 97 percent) for even more impact.
And of course, you don’t have to work through an organization. You can carry out micro-lending in your church, family, community — with the real people you come into contact with every day.
