(KSL News) It started as a simple idea, and now a new Web site is helping people across the world

Kiva.org is a Web site that connects entrepreneurs in different countries with people willing to make loans as small as $25.

The loans allow those unable to make enough money to start businesses and provide for their families.

Jessica Jackley Flannery is the co-founder of Kiva. She says, "I feel really compelled to change this and to reach out to them so that one day things can be different."
