Over the past few weeks, I have had the privilege of working with Liz Fish, Kiva Media Fellow, in Armenia. Liz has come with me on borrower verifications, and I have come with her on media visits. Together we have met more borrowers than either one of us would have alone.
As surprised as my family and friends were when I told them that I’m heading off to Kyrgyzstan, that’s about as surprised as my Kiva colleagues were when they found out that I’m also heading to Frankfurt, for a portion of my Kiva Fellowship.
One of the essential parts of the Kiva Zip model is the Trustee. Trustees are the organizations or individuals that work directly with Kiva Zip and help identify and support borrowers throughout the loan cycle.
