Hey guys! I’m happy to report that my second official Kiva Fellow blog post is now up. (My first, Beginning of a Tajikistan Journey, was a slightly shorter version of Traveling to Khujand, which was originally published on this blog.)
A quick excerpt:
For many Kiva lenders, loan use – or what an entrepreneur plans to do with the funds he or she receives – is the principal consideration in deciding which entrepreneurs to support. On the Kiva website, it’s the single most prominent piece of information supplied about any featured entrepreneur. As it turns out, though, predicting what borrowers will use their loans to do is more complicated than you’d think.
