Vittana - Students in school one loan at a time

There is an amazing new non profit called Vittana, which is kind of like Kiva for student loans.

Their mission statement is:
Our mission is to bring student loans to the developing world through the power of person-to-person micro-lending.
I am really excited for Vittana because I am a huge fan and believer in micro lending, the concept of everyone having the opportunity to help another person. Not just for the wealthy but for everyone, even another student who gives up a few lattes and donates $25 to help another student in another country. I have seen the success and impact non profits like DonorsChoose have had in the classrooms and I am excited to see what Vittana will do for student loans in the developing world.
