Who has experience with Micro Investing?
Here are some websites:
http://www.kiva.org/ As little as $25 investment
http://www.microventures.com/ - $5,000 minimum

What are some others and what has been your experience?
Is this a possible legit source for investing or for chumps?

I can see why people like doing things like this, but I care about total return. And I generally trust multinational corporations, who are governed by an established system of corporate governance and disclosure and have a history of producing wealth and returning money to shareholders, more than I do these micro-entrepreneurs and such.

Kiva.org pays 0% ROI, its jsut about helping people.
I have been a Kiva lender fro about 4 years.
