KivaViz

An Interactive Decision Making Tool for Kiva.org

We explore the idea of using visualization as a decision making tool. We use Kiva.org As a use case and implement it in Protoviz. Every day more than 600 loans are posted on the Kiva website. As a result it makes it difficult for a lender to select a requester and make a loan wisely. We focus on solving this problem by using visualization as a core concept in our tool. We use a number of ideas that we have learned in class to solve this problem
