Use this loan to help a farmer in Guatemala, a restaurant owner in Uganda or a baker in Lebanon start and sustain their businesses to help themselves, their families, and their communities. This is a REAL way you can help REAL people. Start right now.

To get started, just visit Think MTV's website, register, and then check your Think MTV inbox for instructions on how to redeem the gift certificate to make a loan to a Kiva entrepreneur.
