Kiva Lender Denver-Nairobi Sister Cities
Denver, CO, United States
I loan because:
Denver, Colorado and Nairobi, Kenya established a Sister Cities partnership on March 2, 1975. The mission of Denver Sister Cities International is to promote peace through mutual respect, understanding and cooperation with cultural, educational and economic endeavors. Through more than 30 years, the Denver-Nairobi Committee has been dedicated to promoting economic achievements, cultural exchanges, and cross-cultural learning opportunities.
The Denver-Nairobi Committee is excited and honored to be participating in micro-credit lending to individuals strengthening their lives and communities in Kenya.
Denver and Nairobi are both bustling modern capitols, with international air, diverse populations and nearby snow-topped peaks. Nairobi, like Denver, is situated on a high plateau with two of the highest peaks in Africa a relatively short distance away. Nairobi is an exciting and cosmopolitan city and, as the capitol of Kenya, serves as a center of commerce for all of East Africa. Like the "Queen City of the Plains," Nairobi is a beautiful city and has often been referred to as the "Jewel of Africa."
