How KIVA works... is an internet platform that allows individual lenders around the world to identify and lend their money to micro businesses around the world.

It is a simple illustration but it is easy to understand how it works.

UOB is one of the implementing partners for Kiva and is raising up to $115,000 a month for Rwandan micro businesses. During August and September, UOB is allowed to raise even higher amounts to provide funding for agricultural farmers.

It is a wonderful platform for every man and woman who is interested in lending to micro enterprises around the world to help them alleviate their chronic and extreme poverty.

I suggest you try it out to find out how much intangible but powerful benefit you can provide for them with as little as $25. - Jeffrey
