Games
Out of cash?  Out of Kiva Credits?  Here are some games to pass the time that don't come in $25 packets.  Some of them might even give you a little Kiva fix for free!

Philosophy, Religion & Spirituality
Clearly, the mission of Kiva – to connect people through lending for the sake of alleviating poverty – is based on an ethical imperative.  It's not surprising, then, that Kiva Friends discussions occasionally find their way to examining the underpinnings of a Higher Power from a diversity of philosophical, religious and spiritual perspectives.
