Is Kiva a game changer for global missions?

Have you ever heard of Kiva?

From their website:  Kiva is the world’s first person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals to lend to unique entrepreneurs around the globe.

Kiva is in the game to alleviate poverty, but I’m wondering how the concept changes the game for churches and missions agencies as they seek to proclaim Christ, establish churches and alleviate poverty. I do think what Kiva is doing is a good way for us to put our money where our mouth is. Micro-financing (when done well) is effective and very helpful to families and communities.

It seems as though Kiva might change the way we think about how churches partner with churches (or communities without a church) in far away places.  Maybe we need a similar organization with this vision:  (insert name) is the worlds first church to church website empowering churches to invest lives, time, and money in communities and infant churches around the globe.

Maybe the way we impact a community is to lead with micro-financing (or whatever their greatest need) with the goal of developing long term relationships, while be Christ and proclaiming Christ – One church invests in one community.

What do ya think?
