I had a great conversation with on of my co-workers about this website that allows you to loan small amounts of money to people to start businesses.
My co-worker was inspired by the creator of this company to go to grad school pursuing these ideas.

You see profiles of people who need money from a rice farmer in Nepal to a prospective cafe owner in Portland. And you get the $$$ back in a year! How cool. I have no money to loan right now, but I love this concept!


  1. This is a very cool concept. I saw a story on the creator a couple years ago and it's nice that they starting making it available to businesses in the US as well.

  2. Yeah! It's cool how you know to who and for what you're sending money to also.
