This is YOUR meetup. How can it best serve you?

I want to meet social entrepreneurs and community development organizations.

What's one thing that inspired you today?

Kiva Zip is a project of the organization Kiva. Basically everything about my day as a fellow is inspiring! I get to meet borrowers who couldn't get loans any other way, and Kiva Zip has had the ability to impact their lives, their business, and the community. It's an amazing feeling to wake up each day and do something that is impactful.

Tell us something about yourself.

I love to learn. I read constantly, watch documentaries, ted talks, the news, explore real life situations -- you name it; I am constantly trying to understand more!


My name is Alyssa & I just moved from Connecticut to work as a Kiva Zip fellow in Richmond. The focus is to help grow small businesses by offering crowd funded loans.
