About 2.5 months ago, Chelsa and I traveled to Tanzania to visit one of Kiva's current partners, YOSEFO (Youth Self Employment Foundation), learn more about the local microfinance sector, and explore new partnerships with microfinance institutions working to alleviate poverty. One of our first stops was the Financial Sector Deepening Trust (FSDT) where we met with FSDT's charismatic director, Ian Robinson, and FSDT technical manager Sosthenes Kewe.
