Poverty, money - and Love

What do you think of people in poverty? Maybe what Jessica Jackley once did: "they" need "our" help, in the form of a few coins in a jar. The co-founder of Kiva.org talks about how her attitude changed - and how her work with microloans has brought new power to people who live on a few dollars a day.

Kiva.org, an online community that helps individuals loan small amounts of money, called microloans, to entrepreneurs throughout the world, inspired but the work of Muhammad Yunus and his social businesses, like the Grameen Bank.

Kiva mixes the entrepreneurial daring of Google with the do-gooder ethos of Bono.
