Kiva & The Birth of Microfinance

I've always been fascinated by stories and accounts of entrepreneurs. Came across this document a couple of days back, which recounts the starting roots of Kiva by Matt Flannery. It's crisp and makes for extremely interesting reading....What I find even more remarkable is the spirit and determination which drive entrepreneurs towards success.

Why does this figure in this blog...well.... we will over the next few years increasingly see greater advances made in the arena of micro-finance and and the sheer undercurrents of change that are sweeping across the financial services space will most likely require finance professionals to revisit the way we look at the BOP and also in the way we do business....
