HOLIDAY GIFT SERIES: Kiva Microloans

Want to give a gift that COMES BACK? Check out Kiva.org, which helps facilitate microloans, i.e., start-up capital so small entrepreneurs can start a business.

And, not surprisingly, so far the loan repayment has been at 100%! This might be a great no-clutter last minute type gift, one that you know will make someone feel great this holiday season. All sorts of increments are welcome.

Hi Marie,

Thanks for the post on Kiva. More importantly, thank you for reminding your readers of the spirit of this season. It doesn't take a whole lot to make a huge difference in someone's life and we tend to take that for granted during this time of year. Happy holidays!

Regards,

I just wanted to say thanks for this post! I gave several gift certificates to friends. It seemed like such a fun and interesting gift(though poignant at the same time).

Happy Holidays!
