Tal como o Vitor Silva já aqui sugeriu, porque não algo como isto no Porto e Norte de Portugal?

«Kiva and Visa: A Partnership for U.S. Small Businesses

Smaller than traditional bank loans, microloans can be used to expand operations, upgrade equipment, and hire and retain employees. Yet microfinance institutions report that awareness about the availability and potential of microloans remains low among small business owners. Through this partnership, Kiva and Visa strive to address this challenge, extending the reach of microloans to more U.S. small businesses and helping Kiva explore expansion to more regions in the U.S. The announcement comes at the same time that Kiva will unveil its first major expansion since its U.S. launch one year ago, this time with ACCION Texas-Louisiana, the largest microfinance institution in the country. Starting today, for the first time on Kiva, Americans can invest in small business owners in the Gulf Coast who have been hit hard by several disasters over the past five years.»
