MicroPlace is a social business owned by eBay. It is currently the only website that enables everyday people to make investments in the microfinance industry. The microfinance institutions then microcredit small loans – available to the poor which allow them to start a business and work their ways out of poverty. At the same time, the investors have the potential to yield a financial return while helping alleviate global poverty.
