I’ve left the corporate life for a bit to immerse myself in the fascinating world of microfinance. I am currently a Kiva Fellow serving in San Miguel, El Salvador for four months. I am working with a microfinance institution called Fundacion Campo, helping them with the on-boarding process as they become a Kiva partner. Kiva is an online platform that connects people all over the world through lending. On Kiva, people like you and me can make small loans (as small as $25) to a small entrepreneur almost anywhere in the world. You can read the stories of thousands of small entrepreneurs and from their profile on the Kiva website, you can choose what borrower you would like to lend to. And yes, it’s a loan – not a donation – you get your money back at the end of the repayment period (just don’t expect a return in the form of interest).
By the way, this is my personal blog. All my mistakes, opinions, and statements are my own.
Thanks for reading!
