Ten interviews with Mongolian entrepreneurs

A borrower verification is a thorough check of ten random Kiva borrowers of a field partner.  It’s used to verify the accuracy of the information published on the borrower profiles on the Kiva website. A borrower verification happens several times throughout the course of a partnership in order to assess a microfinance institution’s performance levels. Read below about the ten borrowers I visited through a borrower verification with XacBank. Click through the picture to read the full loan update for each borrower.
