Education Microfinance – Vittana funds students worldwide via p2p lending

US based non-profit wants to use the power of p2p lending to bring student loans to the developing world.

It works like Kiva. For as little as 25 US$ a lender can hellp to fund a loan. Vittana partners with local MFIs who evaluate students for past academic achievement, commitment to success, and ability to repay.

All 3 listed loans in Paraguay are already fully funded, but I intend to fund loans as soon as new loan applications are listed.
