There will also be a Kiva Lender-Borrower Meet-Up at the conference. Come meet entrepreneurs whose microloans have been funded on Kiva! This Lender-Borrower Meet-Up is a chance to connect Kiva lenders with local borrowers offline – making the P2P connection even more personal. Hear from borrowers about how business is going, what they think of the investors who supported them on Kiva, and what challenges and opportunities these small business owners see around the corner. This is an informal lunchtime conversation on Friday, May 21st. After borrowers introduce themselves and their businesses, the floor will be open for learning and casual conversation.

Over 800 participants are expected at the conference—reserve your seat today!
