Before the advent of the Web, organizations like Kiva would have been impossible. Thanks to technological advances, Kiva is able to match small-scale donations with micro-loans to men and women in the farthest reaches of the globe. The loans help people like John Garces, who fled Columbia for his life after his dad was assassinated. In the U.S., Garces gained a fresh start and grew his small business with the help of Kiva funding.
