    Thank you for posting about KIVA a while back.  I joined the Atheist team then and it’s been a great experience.

    It’s worth noting that Kiva currently allows new signups to make their first $25 loan for free (thanks to an anonymous sponsor).

    I have one comment, which I admit is a bit of a nitpick. The word “loan” is a noun, not a verb. This is 14 years of banking experience talking here. The word you want here is “lend.” Don’t even get me started on “media,” “data”, lectern vs. podium, etc.
