Combine kiva.org (microlending) with qik.com (realtime video broadcasting from smart phones), and have realtime always-on always-archived video of what people in the third world are doing with the money you lend them. They only get the money if they agree to put up an always-on suhr-veigh-lehnse video of their store, operation etc. -- (i dont have a right click to see if hb makes suggestions for misspelled words yet but those red lines are helping me at least know when to get crazy - thanks hb!)
