Summary
Despite its success in alleviating poverty, particularly among women, microfinance has reached only eight percent of the world's poor. San Francisco-based Matt Flannery and Premal Shah have devised the first online platform for microfinance lending. Kiva, which means "unity" in Swahili, is a website that allows individuals to lend 25 dollars to specific small businesses in the developing world. Kiva.org works with a network of microfinance institutions that use the site as a marketplace to attract loans for their clients. This program accompanies Alvin Hall as he tries to help Kiva.org achieve its ambitious expansion goals and bring a growing number of lenders directly to small entrepreneurs
