Follow Up: Kiva Lenders Host Matt Flannery in Paris

According to a Kiva Translation Volunteer living in Paris the snow partially paralyzed the city last Wednesday, but many people attended the event. Amongst whom were:

Matt Flannery, who was in Paris to participate in a panel discussion about how technology catalyzes social change (featuring distinguished guests like Professor Muhammad Yunus).
Charles-Edouard Vincent, a local social entrepreneur.
Kiva Fellows Alumni.
Kiva volunteer translators, Chloé and Marie.
Kiva lenders and many other people who were eager to learn more about Kiva and Micro-finance in general.
