Loans that change lives. For as little as $25 you can help a small business in a developing country.

Take a look.

Interesting...

But, I think if I were to participate, I'd rather use a check than use a credit card for obvious reasons.

Send me a PM with your credit card number and expiration date and I'll tell you what I think he's referring to.

Exactly...

Look, I'm not saying Kiva is a bad thing. I'm just saying that I don't want an entity that does the majority of it's business with third world countries having possible unrestricted access to my credit card. That shouldn't be too difficult to understand.

I would just do a little more research before committing to something like..."Hey, this seems like a good idea and it's on the internet, so it's gotta be legit...right?. So, here's my credit card number".

But, you don't have a fancy website... And are not (as far as I'm aware) endorsed by the New York Times (which last time I checked was pretty damn well respected)...

If I did that, I'd have a far easier time getting the charges annulled than getting my money back if I gave you a check.
