Kiva Detroit

Documentary short featuring Kiva Detroit launch!

Two weeks ago, Kiva launched "Kiva Detroit": a non-profit, community coalition to bring more than $500,000 in microloans to small businesses in Detroit.

On the day of the launch, the Kiva team met up with our coalition partners in Detroit to celebrate with the local community. Fortunately, this community celebration was captured on film by Rachel Cook and her Microlending Film Project, which has been documenting microfinance in the United States and around the world.

The Microlending Film Project has shared with us their footage of the event, so that the Kiva community can get a sense for what it was like at the Kiva Detroit launch!
