Groupon: $25 Kiva Donation for $15 (Oprah’s Favorite Things 2010)

by Jess on November 20, 2010

I’m so excited to share this unique offer from Groupon today! Have you heard of Kiva? Their mission is to connect people, through lending, for the sake of alleviating poverty throughout the world. By combining microfinance with the internet, Kiva has been creating a global community of people connected through lending.

So how exactly does Kiva work? In a nut shell, Kiva allows you to securely lend money to entrepreneurs around the world which will help them grow their business and alleviate poverty in their country. They, in turn, pay back the loan to you! You can put that money back in your wallet or, I like to reinvest it back into another entrepreneur. PLUS, you can pick who you want to lend money to and follow their progress.

For the next day or so, Kiva has partnered with Groupon and is allowing you to purchase a $25 Kiva loan credit for only $15! How awesome, right? In fact, giving a loan to a Kiva entrepreneur was one of Oprah’s Favorite Things for 2010 and just by her mentioning this special Groupon offer on her show today it crashed the Groupon website temporarily. That’s some serious interest in people wanting to change the lives of others.

Here’s how to snag it:
