You might have heard of Microfinance before, but not like this. This is taking microfinance to the next logical step with social networking. Basically, this site: http://www.kiva.org/ lets you send money to entrepreneurs all around the world. It's cool because you basically are lending money to someone in a typically poorer country to help them build up their business.
The amount you can lend is anywhere from $25 to the full amount of the loan they are asking for. In some cases they are only asking for something like $250, and so $25 goes a long ways towards that goal. I thought I'd share this as you guys are usually pretty awesome about stuff like this and also, if enough people were interested in this, we could even start a "group" on there just for CB. :)
