Stanford Social Innovation Review publishes case study on Kiva

You may have noticed - Kiva's been evolving a lot lately. We're making some big moves, from recent product launches on Kiva.org to the announcement of our cooperation with the UN and the government of Sierra Leone to develop new block-chain based decentralized identification systems in Africa.

Kiva's 10+ years of experience in microfinance has given us unique expertise with and a deep understanding of obstacles to global financial inclusion. We often tell you about the exciting future of Kiva, but it's impossible to share all our experience in a single social media post or blog post. 

If you're passionate about knowing more in-depth insights about where we're headed, check out this report. The Stanford Social Innovation Review just published a thought-provoking in-depth report on Kiva's evolution through the years and our next steps as an organization positioned to address the issue of global financial inclusion. It's well worth your time to read and engage with these ideas as a global citizen. And let us know what you think!
