From the talented Lara Cameron of Kirin Notebook comes another great idea - Kiva is an microfinance organisation that "lets you lend to a specific entrepreneur in the developing world - empowering them to lift themselves out of poverty." What a great idea.
As someone starting a small art business this seems the perfect way to pay back some of the good fortune I've had. And you can lend to a craftperson to buy their materials, like I did. How cool is that!
You also see a photo of the person and get a description of their business and their situation.
For your donation you also get a portfolio page which lets you follow your donations. There are a range of businesses and countries, ages and sexes.
It's easy to do, just click here!
