Hey Kiva Lenders –
Just wanted to let everyone know that we have graduated the first Filipino MFI partner – Community Economic Ventures Inc. (CEVI) – from “Pilot” to “Active” status. In just 4 short months, they have completed a rigorous Pilot process and now represents our first “Active” partner in Philippines. Kudos goes to CEVI's staff, our Partner Development Specialist Rico & our Kiva Fellow Rob Cavese (who is currently onsite at CEVI) for all the hard work they have put int. Hopefully, we will see 2 more partners in the Philippines become “Active” in the next month.
Anyways, just thought I’d share the happy news with everyone!
