A Fistful of Dollars

A Fistful Of Dollars: The Story of a Kiva.org Loan from Kieran Ball on Vimeo.

I have talked before about my enthusiasm for micro-loans to impact on world poverty, and particularly about Kiva, my personal method of making micro-loans. To those I have never explained this clearly to, try this video by Kieran Ball.

This video follows the path of a $25 loan from London, England to Preak Tamao village, Cambodia. Kiva.org is a website that allows internet users like you or I to lend money to people that need it in developing countries, with the aim of empowering them to lift themselves out of poverty. I encourage you to see if it might be a way for you to "lend a hand".

Click here to read Kieran's blog about the video. And if you want to get on board, contact Kiva today.
