Kiva’s newest field partner in Colombia: Interactuar

We are delighted to welcome Interactuar aboard as Kiva’s second Colombian field partner!

Interactuar is headquartered in Medellin and operates all over the department of Antioquia, offering loans, insurance products and a variety of other services to local microentrepreneurs. Interactuar runs loan and consulting programs specially designed for start-up businesses, low-cost professional training and certification programs in a variety of fields, food laboratories and marketing and product design services for its clients.

Kiva was interested in working with Interactuar because of its strong social mission and its sophisticated educational programs, which are among the most impressive in the microfinance industry today. We are proud to announce this partnership and look forward to growing together with Interactuar and its borrowers!
