Great information on the development of this kind of lending. I love the idea. I was also interested in seeing the other groups that are doing some innovative work.


Michael Kruse

Thanks John. Microfinance has been around for some time but the demand is far greater than funds available. I think Kiva, and ideas like it, have the potential to create a new capital market. Only time will tell.


Thanks for introducing me to Kiva, Michael. I plan on looking into it. It may provide the missing link in my stewardship plan. I have heard of microfinance, but didn't know of a responsible way to get involved.

Michael Kruse

Your welcome Dave. We have supported people doing micro-enterprise development around the world. Kiva seems to me to be the next logcial step in creating the captial markerts that will better facilitate the expansion of this approach to economic development.
