Want to donate to a cause but not quite sure what?
Want to help someone but not quite sure how?
Want to actually assist someone in becoming self-sufficient?
I've just found this great website where you can "loan" money to folks in third world countries who want to start their own business.
This is not Joe Smith who wants to start a business for profit purposes. This is for the single mother in Africa who hopes to have a means of living that will regularly sustain her family.
You get to keep in touch with these folks through emails and it seems that loans get "repaid" 99% of the time!
But the thing is, you don't get the loan repayment back in cash. You get it back in credits which you can then use to loan another budding entrepreneur.
Sounds like a real interesting concept I say.
