For a limited time, thanks to the generosity of a donor, kiva is offering free loans BOTH to new members AND to the people who invite them.
So if you’re already a member, go log in to kiva and INVITE YOUR FRIENDS, and you’ll get to make free loans. (As will your friends!)
And if you aren’t yet a member, you can follow my invite link here to make a free loan!
ALSO: Remember to join the nerdfighter kiva group. It’s a great community committed to offering entrepreneurs in the developing world access to the same kind of inexpensive credit we take for granted here so that they can grow their businesses.
Kiva works closely with all the microfinance organizations they partner with to ensure maximum transparency, and you can do lots of fascinating research into both the businesspeople you’re loaning to and the organizations that administer the loans. Kiva has the highest possible rating at charitynavigator, and again, inviting your friends means FREE LOANS FOR EVERYONE!
GUYS LOOK! Free Kiva loans again!
(Seriously, this is like, the easiest possible way to actually make a difference.)
