Kiva.org has been cited several times in Trend Hunter because the microfinance site is just so awesome! The latest from Kiva is that they partnered with Advanta Bank, one of the largest issuers of credit cards to US small business owners and entrepreneurs.

In addition to looking great, when lenders use the card to make a Kiva grant, Advanta doubles the grant, up to $200/month. Although it is a business credit card, you don't actually need to own a business to apply. Stats for Microlending Credit Cards Trending: Older & Mild
