Kiva celebrates India launch with Bhangra Flash Mob!
On Indian Independence Day, Kiva made the exciting announcement that we've launched in India! Kiva is now giving the global lending community a simple, ethical channel to support India's most geographically-isolated, underserved and vulnerable groups.

And we thought the best way to let the world know about this new initiative was a Bhangra Flash Mob! 

For the past few weeks, bhangra enthusiasts and the Kiva community have come together to learn dance moves for the event that occurred yesterday in San Francisco's Union Square.

Take a look at the fun we had yesterday!

All in sync with our Bhangra moves! 


Continuing the Bhangra dance party! The excitement never ends!
