I'm looking at the form 990 from these clowns.

Year/ revenue / / salaries and benifits payed
2011 / 12mil / 5.5mil
2012 / 15mil /
7.25

so about half of the hard earned money you donate is going directly into their pockets.
Mr Flannery and about 20 of his croneys are making average more then 100k a year plus extra benefits. What doesn't go directly into their pockets goes to crooked international bankers
I know in your heart of hearts you want to help the people they seem to portray. Unfortunatly it looks like the main lives they want to change are there own.

there were more people to give loans to. At one point, I only saw like 3 people. I guess this is a good thing since that means that a lot of other people are giving loans.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

people don't know about it

Kiva.org is a wonderful organization that has really been revolutionary in the field of microfinance by allowing someone to lift an entrepreneur in the developing world out of poverty with as small as $25. My experience has been very positive because the website allows me to connect with an entrepreneur of my choice and establish a connection which is blurred between the lines of a personal/business relationship. At the end of the day Kiva is perfect as I can help someone who is facing the conditions of global poverty and at the same time get my money back over 98% of the time.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
