Just made my first loan through

A few weeks ago I finally took the time to read up on and ended up making my first loan to an entrepreneur in Azerbaijan who needed cash to increase and diversify her inventory. This was a great experience and more rewarding than getting myself more tunes or another movie.

Kiva has succeeded in changing lives by creating a way for people like me to loan $25 to low-income entrepreneurs in the developing world.

Kiva was co-founded by Jessica Flannery, MBA 2007, and is a great example of the passion our students bring to the GSB.
