Kiva has put the power of the internet into the hands of countless organizations and individuals.

The entrepreneurs are given resources to make a business plan and proposal that is then given to lenders.
The success-rate of the repayments and entrepreneurs is now over 97 percent.
Much like Kiva, Acumen has been designed to allow investors to provide loans to struggling entrepreneurs.
Individual investors can also offer funds to Acumen itself which will then diversify one’s investments.
The primary difference between these two organizations is the fact that Acumen focuses on clean energy companies and local agriculture businesses in developing countries.
