Why are you interested in becoming a Trustee?
I want to become a trustee because I feel strongly about helping those in my community that could benefit from the Kiva Zip program. I'm confident that we have a very strong model that can have a sizable impact for the entrepreneurs that we work with.

I started my career in San Francisco working at LinkedIn and am currently volunteering with Kiva on the US Zip team. I studied entrepreneurship at the University of Arizona and have been involved with a bunch of small ventures over the years.

Borrower Due Diligence

How will you decide who to endorse as a borrower? What due diligence will you conduct?
I will endorse borrowers who have a solid business plan, strong character, and a specific use for a loan on Kiva. I understand the types of entrepreneurs and micro-businesses that are the right fit for Kiva, and will choose to endorse borrowers that fit a specific criteria.
