Please join milepoint's Zidisha team. Zidisha.org is a nonprofit that lets you make microloans for as little as $1 to a small business owner from around the world. What makes Zidisha really unique is that you can communicate directly with the individual you funded via each loan's discussion forum on the Zidisha.org website. 100% of your funds go to the borrower and you receive monthly repayments with interest as the loan is repaid. It's a great way to fight poverty while getting to know and talk to a real person in a developing country of your choice. Check out https://www.zidisha.org/index.php?refid=3284 to learn more. Using that link to join Zidisha and then join our milepoint team means that every time you make a loan, your impact grows and the team's impact gets credit twice for your loan. We are now approaching $20,000 in loans and have 14 members. We need a few (a lot) more. We have a Zidisha forum here and invite you to participate at http://milepoint.com/forums/forums/zidisha-fostering-peer2peer-entrepreneurship.361/ Other members have posted links there and you are welcome to use any one of them. After you join, look at tips to get your own link. Using a link confers no benefit on the member whose link you choose beyond adding to his or her bragging rights by increasing that member's impact.
