My challenge to you: Become a microlender!
As little as $25 you can make a difference for entrepreneurs in developing countries. How this works is:
1. visit Kiva.org.
2. Click on the Lend button.
3. Find a business that you would like to help.
4. Click on the LEND $25 button, and follow instructions.
The difference between being a microlender and just donating money is that the $25 is paid back to you. When you get the $25 back, you can re-lend it (on and on). So instead of helping one person, you can help many with the same amount of money.
Q: What does this have to do with A/P?
A: Absolutely nothing. But I believe in helping people stay out of the grips of preditory lenders.
