A Letter to Kiva Lenders

Dear Kiva Lenders:

Just one year ago the Kiva staff (there were fewer of us then!) were gathered in our one-room office in an old warehouse-turned-office-space in the Mission District of San Francisco. Some of us were in Halloween costumes, all of us were excited for a big day in Kiva history.

Hi all!

Leon, Masaya, y ahora Guate

Saludos desde Guatemala!

I'm now arrived in Guatemala City, and thought I'd give a little update on the final days in Nicaragua to those who have been following the adventures. Given the positive feedback on the photo documentary format, I'm going to stick with that for now..... Heres a little snapshot of the past week....
