TED Lecture: Jessica Jackley: Poverty, Money -- and Love

I'd like to believe there are more people like Ms. Jackley than people like the Koch brothers, or some of the other people that have been mentioned on this blog.
If you like more information about the Kiva program, you can find it at http://www.kiva.org/.   

Since Kiva was founded in 2005:

744,179 Kiva lenders have financed
$300 million in loans at a
98.94% Repayment rate
744,179 people have made loans
80.45% of those loans have been made to women in
146 countries around the world and
the average loan is only $392.10

Here are a some faces of the people that Kiva is helping.
