Kiva is unique in the fact that they operate by offering micro loans to struggling entrepenuers in areas that do not have access to banking. This means you choose who the money is lent to and 99% of that money is returned to lend again and again. We have chosen to use Reddit as the platform for suggeting and voting on where the money should go.
