How far can two dollars go?

A group of students at UMW are planning a project to see if they can live on $2/day(as almost have the world’s population does). Our student-run portal has a story about it , and the comment thread that is developing is further refining the project planning.

There’s a mention in the story about KIVA, a site I stumbled upon a few weeks ago (Via a post at Graham Glass’ blog). I think the whole microloan concept is fascinating.
