Surprisingly, I’m neither talking in rhyming slang nor being sarcastic. Having just watched John Green’s vlog on a project called Kiva, I had to pop over to my corner of the internet to tell you guys about it.
The gist is this: it enables you to loan money to people and businesses in the developing world. So that they can, you know, develop.
Actually, just go watch John’s video because he explains it so well.
NB. In case you don’t read as much YA fiction as I do, John Green is the talented author of Looking For Alaska, Paper Towns and others. He creates weekly video blogs with his brother Hank Green and also created the Nerdfighter community. I am in no way the target audience for any of these endeavors, but I don’t let that stop me. DFTBA.
