On Wednesday, November 11, Net Impact NYC had the pleasure of partnering with KivaZip to host a panel of KivaZip loan recipients here in NYC. Kiva Zip is part of Kiva.org, a platform through which lenders make microfinance loans directly to borrowers. Guests learned about the social entrepreneur’s experiences with KivaZip and how their using the loans for social impact-driven missions. Although all the entrepreneurs had different reasons for beginning their business, they shared common themes and challenges.
Attendees had the opportunity to learn about peer-to-peer lending in NYC, and network with like-minded people! Lenders and representatives from Kiva Zip were on hand to answer questions.
