Looking for a year-end giving opportunity? Looking for a new and different Christmas gift? How about microfinance that enables entrepreneurs in developing countries to open or expand their businesses. It's cool. You give $25, then they use it to develop their business, which helps bring them and their community out of poverty. They pay back the loan and you can reinvest in another person's small business. How neat!

The box in the sidebar updates automatically so you can see people whose businesses aren't yet fully funded.
Susan, thanks for the gift certificate that allowed me to start helping an African woman run a small business!
