25 Bucks Can Change the World

International Bank of Bob book coverBob Harris was a travel writer specializing in luxury destinations. He began to think that, “There’s a point where luxury passes beyond any sane human comfort and starts touching lunacy” (like a hotel in Dubai spending $300,000 a year on pure gold pastry decorations). Harris’ ethical musings on money led him to Kiva, a non-profit providing microloans at zero interest to business owners. Bob Harris began lending small amounts and consistently, promptly being repaid. He then wanted to meet the people behind the loans.
