Just a minute ago I submitted a 25 USD (round about 20 EUR) micro loan at KIVA for the Ruth Nuwajuna's Group (see here
; just scroll down there to see my micro loan (Benjamin / Germany)). The group needs money to invest in fertilizers for her banana plantation in Uganda.
I think a good way to support people in poor countries is to support their businesses with micro loans. On the one hand side they can do important investments and on the other side they work hard and thereby keeping up their business.
