We want to talk to you!

Whether you're tweeting at us, joining a discussion on Facebook, emailing us, or participating in our webinars we love hearing from you. Which got us thinking, how could we have a more open dialogue to discuss hot topics?

Join us on June 14th for the first Kiva Insights - a conversation between lenders and Kiva staff, hosted by actor, writer and Kiva enthusiast, Bob Harris. During this one hour call, registered partipants will be able to ask questions directly to Kiva President, Premal Shah and other Kiva staff members.

We'll kick off the call with a conversation between Premal and Bob to discuss current trending topics, such as expiring loans and exciting new initiatives like our student and renewable energy loans. This conversation will lead into a question and answer segment open to everyone on the call.

While the call is intended to be an open-ended conversation, one topic we will be discussing is our June theme: Strength of Family and the power of lending to men. 

Microfinance tends to focus on women and as our Annual Report shows, 80% of Kiva borrowers are women, but why? What role do men play in creating a more equitable and prosperous world?

We look forward to you joining us for the very first Kiva Insights. To join the call, please register here. Talk to you soon!
