2014 was a great year for the Kiva Zip team. We grew rapidly, launched three new Kiva Cities, made our 1,000th loan, struck up our 500th trustee partnership, and improved our repayment rate. Thank you to everyone in our community, who made this happen.

Kiva Zip U.S. 2014 Review

  1. 1. 2014 annual review
  2. 2. Cicely Tyson said this: “I think when you begin to think of yourself as having achieved something, then there's nothing left for you to work towards. I want to believe that there is a mountain so high that I will spend my entire life striving to reach the top of it.”
  3. 3. …Which is to say that we are striving hard on the Kiva Zip team. And the mountain we’re climbing is shrouded in clouds. We want to empower MORE hard-working entrepreneurs with our unique interest-free, crowdfunded capital to climb their own mountains. But also to provide better services and support to our Borrowers and Lenders… …To keep improving our repayment rate. But also to keep expanding access to capital for people and populations that conventional lenders deem too risky or expensive to serve. Cicely Tyson said this: “I think when you begin to think of yourself as having achieved something, then there's nothing left for you to work towards. I want to believe that there is a mountain so high that I will spend my entire life striving to reach the top of it.”
  4. 4. But C. P. Cavafy said this: “Keep Ithaka always in your mind. Arriving there is what you are destined for. But do not hurry the journey at all. Better if it lasts for years, so you are old by the time you reach the island, wealthy with all you have gained on the way.”
  5. 5. But C. P. Cavafy said this: “Keep Ithaka always in your mind. Arriving there is what you are destined for. But do not hurry the journey at all. Better if it lasts for years, so you are old by the time you reach the island, wealthy with all you have gained on the way.” …So while we’re just starting out on our journey, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on what we achieved along the way in 2014.
