Hi, does anyone know of any reputable paces that offer microloans? I found one a long time ago where you could choose who to lend to and you didn't have to give the whole amount but the site showed how much the person had towards their goal.

I've googled but can only find places which I have never heard of and so don't know if any are legit. I'm sure the one I found before was linked to a 'known' charity like Oxfam or similar.

I think it's a great way to help and as I have a little tiny bit of money spare ATM I thought I'd 'pay it forward' and try to help someone in the developing world (ie Africa esp Rwanda or the Sudan).

Thanks for your help
