Please note that this Field Partner does not meet all of the minimum criteria for partnership with Kiva. HOPE Congo is a start-up MFI that is being fully backed by the HOPE International with an institutional guarantee. Because Kiva lenders are fully protected against institutional failure by the guarantee agreement, Kiva felt it was appropriate to override our minimum criteria in order to access this new market.
