A Seattle-based non-profit has helped 1,000 students in developing countries get a proper education — thanks entirely to its micro-loan platform and donations from the public.

Vittana was founded in 2009 with the aim of helping students in developing countries pay for their education through student loans. Two years later it has funded 1,000 students in 10 developing countries. Zachary Sniderman/Mashable.
