For those who will have the opportunity to be in Paris, this is going to be an amazing day! Kiva and Les Condors 2000 would like to invite you to join for some fun activities including a football (soccer) tournament, Latino music, Salsa classes, Pétanque game, drinks and more! No ticket purchase required (this is a FREE event folks!) and no RSVP necessary. And to top it off, all drink profits will go towards loans for Kiva entrepreneurs. This event is a unique opportunity to meet others in the Kiva community and we encourage you to share this invitation with family and friends who may be in the area.
All are welcome, so help us spread the word and come on out to support Kiva on a summer afternoon in Paris. You can find more information about the event here. We are also looking for volunteers to help out, so if you’re interested and want to share your lending experience on Kiva, please comment on the Facebook event page and someone will be in touch with you directly. We hope to see you at the Stade de la Plaine in Paris on Saturday, June 27th!
