Kiva.org is a website that lends people small amounts of money so they can improve their lives. This is called microlending.
The class split into teams and examined the different people on kiva. Each team presented to the class for which person should get the loan.
We decided on José Antonio from Ecuador who needed money to repair his house. We loaned him $25. He needs $350 more
