Microfinance site Kiva data now available

If you aren’t familiar with Kiva.org, they run the world’s first person-to-person micro lending website allowing one person to “loan” a few dollars to entrepreneurs on the other side of the world who really needs it.

A new site, Kivadata.org, that says it is not affiliated with Kiva makes a lot of the data from Kiva available in a series of charts. Check out how many loans are given out by region, or what the average amount of the loans are, as well as tons more stats.
