Someday you happen to stumble on a story that just amazes you. I happen to come across an article on Kiva.org. It is building a community that matches people who want to give with the people who could use some help around the world. Kiva has taken micro-financing to a new level by combining the power of Internet with the power of human spirit.
Personally, I like how Kiva identifies people as entrepreneurs who could use micro loan and help improve life of a family.
