Transforming Lives

When jobs are created people survive on their own as their self-esteem and outlook on life improve dramatically. The income generated from their new businesses allows once poor families to begin to fulfill basic needs transforming one life at a time as each person escapes the tragedies of poverty. 
 

Field Partner Testimonials

This is the first post in a geography quiz series that will feature Kiva borrowers, partners and fellows from a specific region. Answers to quiz questions can be found at the bottom of this post.

South America is a continent with 12 countries, 385 million people and 6.9 million square miles. Find out some cool facts - and get to know a couple Kiva borrowers along the way!

Hold onto your hats, Kiva just trained our 29th fellows class last week. Eighteen fellows came to town (San Francisco!) and joined us at our headquarters for a week of intense training before embarking on their assignments. We might be located in the United States but our fellows come from all over the world and this class was no different with 11 nationalities represented amongst them. This is one of the liveliest times of year in our office and we can’t help but share a few of our favorite behind-the-scenes photos. 
 
Don’t forget you can follow KF29 on assignment on our blog, Twitter and Instagram.
