Kicking off in Milwaukee

It's been a whirlwind of a week, but all the work has been worth it as Kiva Zip launched in Milwaukee on Tuesday! Countless hours of phone calls and meetings and planning have led to 18 loans currently fundraising in Wisconsin and 7 more have already been funded -- all in the last week!

Enjoy some of the various photos snapped throughout Kiva City Day in Milwaukee!

It's official!

"My goal is that you get your loans, get rich, and stay in Milwaukee."

Innae has been an award-winning broadcast journalist for the most of the last decade and is seeking a different path for the next. She worked as a producer, reporter and anchor in two different television markets, engaging in local communities and encouraging small businesses to thrive. That passion linked her immediately with microfinance. She joined the Kiva Zip internship program with the intent of promoting this branch of finance with her storytelling and marketing skills. Though carrying an American passport, Innae calls Seoul home since she spent her adolescence at international school. She later received a degree in Communications at the University of Pennsylvania.
