Want to play Venture Capitalist for a day? Be the lender you are and spread the love. Want to fund a new business start up? And do it single handedly? Then go check out Kiva because now you can.
At least, in Africa.
The idea is that you donate $25 or more and you can help fund a company over there (really just a person) and a lot of the businesses are really simple (buying and selling goats anyone?). It’s really cool. If you visit the site check out the About Us page and take a look at the photos. I like how they made them slightly animated. Makes your typical web site photo that much more interesting.
