If you’ve read this blog before, you know I love Kiva.org and what they’re doing. They’ve got a promo now to get new users to use their service to provide loans to the working poor around the world.

Here’s the deal: Kiva will give you $25 to lend to someone in the world who wouldn’t otherwise qualify for a loan. Upsides: No obligation. You get a chance to help someone in need and it costs you nothing but a minute or two of your time. Downside: When the loan is repaid, Kiva keeps the funds (normally you can either withdraw them or loan again).

Interested? Why wouldn’t you be? Sign up here
