I have been an long time support of Kiva.  It is a great company that makes it so easy to help other people. It empowers people by allowing them to give money to back up micro loans that would otherwise be to risky to do without Kiva guaranteeing them. Kiva has exploded since it creation.  Kiva has allowed hundred of other get ministries to form because of Kiva.  Kiva is the Ebay of ministry.  Kiva has a whole page of plugins people have created on Firefox for Kiva.  It has allowed ministries such as World Vision to find people who could really use loans and use the Kiva platform to fund their client.  Alalay sa Kaunlaran, Inc. is a company that was founded in 1986.  It was started by a group of Christian businessmen who wanted to help with Philipians issues with poverty and unemployment.   Kiva has given this group of businessmen the tools and resources they need to effectively minister to their community.  Alalay sa Kaunlaran has been on Kiva since 2008 and they have loaned over 2,000,000 dollars on Kiva.  Kiva has revolutionized the way people raise money for 3rd world businessman.  Kiva is a perfect example of how powerful the internet is.  Kiva was an origination that wanted to get involved in micro financing, but because of the power of the internet.  Kiva has allowed normal people to kelp a taxi drive in the Congo receive a loan to fix his car.  Or another example would a boy from Ohio can help father with 6 kids build his house.  Kiva and the internet has opened up huge opportunities to help people who really need loan.
