The Kiva Chronicles blog is back!

In his last post on his blog on the Skoll Foundation's Social Edge, Matt Flannery talked about his experiment with Twitter. After a few successful months, he decided to continue the experiment. While he will pop in from time to time, while he's away we have new voices to tell Kiva's unfolding story.

Kiva has been very fortunate to draw a diverse pool of volunteer Kiva Fellows who fulfill Kiva's mission in places around the globe. Whether a language student with extensive experience living in the developing world, a young professional in the financial or technology sector, or a career changer with more experience but hoping to add that rare on-the-ground international work experience, these Kiva Fellows are inspiring social entrepreneurs in their own right.

Each week, we will share the thoughts of a different fellow.

As a good first start, please welcome Joel Carlman, who has been working in Kisumu, Kenya, with Kisumu Medical and Education Trust, one of Kiva's field partners.
