We loan because...
we want to help businesses in this beautiful island nation and provide a window into the Sri Lankan economy and life

About us
Hello!
My name is Brian Kelly and I am serving as a Kiva Fellow at brand new field partner (and Kiva country!) BRAC Sri Lanka here in the capital of Colombo.

I am very excited to be here as a member of KF10 to help bring Sri Lankan businesses onto Kiva.org and help spread word about this beautiful island nation and the climate of microfinance here.

This team can serve as a group of Kiva Lenders who want to learn about Sri Lanka and work together to support businesses across the island.

Location: Sri Lanka
