What our 500+ investors are saying
I micro-loaned $200 in solar energy through Renewables.org, an innovative project inspired by the micro-lending platform kiva.org. Paul Subzak via Twitter

I believe that it can be a total game changer because of its philanthropic value proposition! Keyur Ahuja via Twitter
