Kiva Lending Team: Kiva Social Enterprises
We loan because...
the "missing middle" is real: small and medium enterprises (5 - 250 employees) are responsible for 75% of the workforce and 95% of the companies in developed countries, yet in emerging markets they’re practically non-existent.
Individuals who want to support social entrepreneurs who aim for structural changes.
