Matthew Flannery is co-founder of Kiva, one of my favorite new non-profits. On his excellent blog, he’s just posted a video of a Ugandan client using the Kiva site. If you’re a web designer, or at all interested in the issue of the digital divide, you should watch it. It’s actually a bit harrowing.
In related news, the merchant I helped fund via Kiva just paid back 10 percent of his loan! Nice!
