This is a Adobe Flex based framework for utilizing the Kiva API. At the moment the Kiva Dashboard consists of the following widgets.

What is a widget anyway?

A widget is something that you can include on a webpage or even a blog, really anywhere. The idea with a widget is to make it really easy to use and reuse. Take for example the Kiva Loan Table widget. This can be used to display all of the loans currently fundraising for a given MFI. For more information on how to include one of these widget on your web page, click on one of the links above.
