New Vietnamese Partner moving to Active Status

Hello Fellow Kivans --

I just wanted to share the latest development from Vietnam. Our newest Vietnamese partner - Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women - has completed their Pilot phase and will be moving to Active status effective immediately. Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women joined Kiva in late 2008 and has worked diligently - with assistance from Kiva Fellows James MacKenzie & Bernice Wong - to complete the Kiva Pilot Phase. Please join Kiva in congratulating them on becoming an active Kiva partner and please consider funding a loan from Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women!
