Kiva and Global AFC Social Mixer
For those who live in the Bay Area, mark your calendars! Global Agents for Change is riding to break the cycle again and you're invited to help us celebrate on Thursday, June 25th at Taverna Aventine.
Join 20 young cyclists as they reach San Francisco in their 2000 mile journey from Vancouver to the Tijuana border. We're inviting Kiva's Community in SF to join the riders as they celebrate this third annual tour in support of microcredit initiatives globally and the ongoing work of Kiva to connect lenders with deserving entrepreneurs.
