Kiva.org is pleased to announce our fourth Field Partner in Kenya, People Microcredit Investment Bureau (PEMCI).
PEMCI's mission is to build wealth and assets, encourage self-employment, increase incomes and restore market forces to benefit individuals and communities through affordable and sustainable microloans and related financial services. This would be achieved through: innovative ideas; diversified financial products; programs and services to individuals and communities especially low income entrepreneurs in the informal sector; networking with other development partners; teamwork and mobilization of resources and support nationally and worldwide.
Ultimately PEMCI strives to deliver a wide range of financial and non-financial services that contribute to a better and equitable world for ALL.
We've had so many requests for more entrepreneurs in this part of the world to loan to, and we're glad to be adding another Kenyan partner to Kiva's Partnerships Portfolio.
