A Kiva Coordinator is someone who organizes and manages the Kiva program at one of Kiva’s field partners. Watch the video to find out what a Kiva Coordinator does everyday, their favorite aspects of working with Kiva, and also the challenges of being a Kiva Coordinator. As a Roaming Fellow, I had the opportunity to interview three Mongolian field partners – XacBank, Credit Mongol, and Transcapital.

      Thank you! I’ll let them know your kind words. The Kiva Coordinators and myself worked hard to make this for the Kiva community. It’s nice to hear your feedback.

    Thank you Amber for this great post/video – I was thrilled to see the Swiss Flag on one of the ladies desk :-))

      Hi Antonia – Thank you for our kind feedback. I didn’t notice the Swiss flag before you pointed it out, but now I see it in there! 🙂
