Woop! We've already raised over 1400 in loans. This, incidentally, outpaces the Harvard Business group on Kiva.

ALSO, I want to issue a correction - Kiva does not pay out interest at this time. The money for interest goes toward paying operating expenses.

There's a really cool site called Kiva, where regular people can make microloans to entrepreneurs in other countries. These are not donations, but loans, so you not only get your money back, you get it with interest.

Ryan North and I got the idea to start a webcomics group that you can join here. By making loans, you can support small business owners in poor countries, increase the already-bloated egoes of webcomic creators, and make a little money while doing it. What's NOT to love?

Today's webcomic link is Jim Zubkavich, best known for The Makeshift Miracle. This comic was one of the first really good really gorgeous online graphic novels. It's absolutely worth the short time it'll take you to read it. Go!
