As Kiva’s 23rd Fellows class (KF23) prepares to go out into the field, there are so many questions about the adventures and challenges ahead. Former Kiva Fellow Juan Barbed’s answer is this exhilarating mash up of his incredible journey, starting in El Salvador and then following him through Ghana and Togo.
Juan weaves a beautiful story of the people and places that made his time as a Kiva Fellow so special:
She first realized her passion for nonprofits leveraging social media while working in web communications at MSF. She is incredibly excited to join the content team at Kiva and explore the juncture of technology and international development more thoroughly. She spent nearly a year working in Tanzania with students and was lucky enough to witness the spirit of small-scale entrepreneurship and how it impacts communities firsthand. She holds a BA from Princeton University where she concentrated in politics and was a member of the varsity swimming and diving team.
