About this event

Founded in 2005, Kiva has now funded over 2 million entrepreneurs around the world with $850 million of microloans. These loans have been crowdfunded by 1.5 million individual lenders, and paid back with a 97% repayment rate. After starting his career in the London office of Oliver Wyman, Jonny took a break from strategy consulting to volunteer at Kiva in 2009. After falling in love with Kiva's mission (and his wife Ali, who worked at Kiva at the time!), he returned to Kiva full-time in 2011, to co-found the Kiva Zip pilot program. The program focuses on supporting financially excluded entrepreneurs here in the United States with 0% interest loans and the social capital engendered by Kiva's crowdlending model. Jonny's vision for the Kiva U.S. program is to reimagine a financial system based on people, not profit. He studied History at the University of Cambridge.
