Google Map of Kiva Loans


NeedVision is a Google Map mashup of loans made by micro-lending site Kiva.

Kiva is a person-to-person micro-lending website helping individuals to lend directly to unique entrepreneurs in the developing world. Individuals and groups can make a loan and help a real person make great strides towards economic independence and improve life for themselves, their family, and their community. Throughout the course of the loan (usually 6-12 months), lenders receive email journal updates and track repayments.

Markers on the map contain a brief description, photograph and a link to the details of the loan on the Kiva website.
