 Two of these organizations that I know of are Kiva: http://www.kiva.org/ and Opportunity International: http://www.opportunity.org/.  I have given a loan through Kiva recently and am waiting to see how it works out.  It is a very interesting and inspiring feeling to know that my small contribution is possibly helping someone's livelihood by providing them the means to bring themselves out of poverty.
