I first found out about Kiva by a loan team invitation. To me Kiva promotes personal efficacy on both sides of the loan. In a world of 7 billion, Kiva shows us how incremental goodwill is exponential in improving lives.
For the past 5 years, I have been working at the International Tropical Timber Organization (ITTO), and IGO based in Yokohama that bridges the poverty alleviation needs of forest communities and natural resources agendas of governments in tropical countries. My work has been a combination of back office admin & development outreach.
