Published by MSLGROUP
This week, we distill insights around Kiva Zip - a true person-to-person micro-lending platform which enables people to lend directly to entrepreneurs in the U.S. and Kenya without a middleman.

100+ thinkers and planners within MSLGROUP share and discuss inspiring projects on social data, crowdsourcing, storytelling and citizenship on the MSLGROUP Insights Network.

Every week, we pick up one project and do a deep dive into conversations around it -- on the MSLGROUP Insights Network itself but also on the broader social web -- to distill insights and foresights. We share these insights with you on our People’s Insights blog and compile the best insights from the network and the blog in the People’s Insights Quarterly Magazine, as a showcase of our capabilities.

We have further synthesized the insights to provide foresights for business leaders and changemakers — in the ten-part People’s Insights annual report titled Now & Next: Ten Frontiers for the Future of Engagement, now available as a Kindle eBook.

What is Kiva Zip?
Founded in 2011,Kiva Zipis a true person-to-person micro-lending platform which enablespeople to lend directly to entrepreneurs in the U.S. and Kenya without a middleman.Entrepreneurs share their business ideas online and lenders can directly contribute to theamount they need.Like Kiva, Kiva Zip does not charge any fees, and service provider PayPal waives its fees.Because there is no middleman, borrowers receive loans at 0% interest.
Kiva Zip is still in alpha, but is a goodindication of where charitable lending isgoing: from indirect P2P to direct P2P andfrom supporting overseas borrowers tosupporting local and foreign entrepreneurs.
Background: How Kiva works
Founded in 2005,Kivawas the first onlineplatform to indirectly connect lenderswith borrowers in developing countries,via its extensive network of field partners(microfinance institutions, social businesses,schools and non profits). Field partnersapprove borrowers, collect their photos andstories and share this with Kiva volunteers,who translate and upload these to Kiva.org.
