If you know small businesses that need funding in the developing countries, encourage them to visit Kiva. Kiva started off with several entrepreneurs in Uganda and will lend $10 million in 2008 to small entrepreneurs in developing countries. Individuals impressed with your business model, lend money to you via Kiva. More details...

For bigger social entrepreneurship projects, consider Echoing Green. It funds up to $60, 000 to individuals and $90, 000 to partnerships. Unlike Kiva, this is a grant, not a loan. The money does not need to be paid back. The 2007 finalists include applicants from Uganda, Sudan, Equatorial Guinea and Kenya. The 2008 applications are being accepted, please prepare your application early enough to beat the December 1 deadline. More details and links to this year’s finalists...
