Transcript of "Kiva faq slides"

  1. 1. Q & A: How does Kiva choose it’s Field Partners? <ul><li>Kiva partners with established microfinance institutions with a social mission of lending to the poor. We conduct extensive due diligence on each Field Partner.  </li></ul><ul><li>In order to become a Field Partner with Kiva, a microfinance institution must, at a minimum: </li></ul><ul><li>Serve at least 1,000 active borrowers with microfinance services </li></ul><ul><li>Have a history (at least 2-3 years) of lending to poor, excluded, and/or vulnerable people for the purpose of alleviating poverty or reducing vulnerability </li></ul><ul><li>Be registered as a legal entity in its country of operation </li></ul><ul><li>Have at least 1 year of financial audits </li></ul><ul><li>We also prefer an MFI have a profile on the MIX Market ( www.mixmarket.org ) </li></ul><ul><li>For more information, please visit our Risk and Due Diligence Center: </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.kiva.org/about/risk </li></ul><ul><li>and our Partner Information Center: </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.kiva.org/partners/info </li></ul>
  2. 2. Q & A: What about the Delinquency Rates on Kiva? <ul><li>Kiva defines the Delinquency (Arrears) Rate as the amount of late payments divided by the total outstanding principal balance Kiva has with the Field Partner. </li></ul><ul><li>Arrears can result from late repayments from Kiva borrowers as well as delayed payments from the Field Partner.   </li></ul><ul><li>Many Kiva Field Partners have very low Delinquency Rates because of their strong credit methods including situations where borrowers are required to join borrowing support groups – which chip in when a group member is unable to repay on time. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Q & A: Optional Donations at Check-out <ul><li>Kiva supports our operations through &quot;optional fees&quot; and donations from our lender community.  </li></ul><ul><li>100% of every dollar you lend on Kiva goes directly towards funding loans. </li></ul><ul><li>Kiva does not take a fee, so we rely on small optional donations to keep our site running. </li></ul><ul><li>Our system automatically suggests a 15% donation on every loan, however donations to Kiva's operational expenses are completely optional, so you can choose to donate $0.00 when you lend.  </li></ul><ul><li>______________________________________________________________________ </li></ul><ul><li>When you check out, please follow these steps to change your donation amount: </li></ul><ul><li>When you're in the &quot;My Basket&quot; section, click the &quot;Edit&quot; link where you see the donation amount listed. </li></ul><ul><li>You'll see a pop-up, and you can select &quot;$0.00 (Not now)&quot; from the drop-down menu. </li></ul><ul><li>Click &quot;Save&quot; and then click &quot;Continue&quot; to proceed. </li></ul>
