      Would anyone be interested in volunteering for Kiva?  A contact of mine at Kiva has asked me to forward this to the Peace Corps list, in case you'd be interested.

      >My colleague Rachael passed me your details as someone who may be able to help reach out to possible candidates or groups who may be interested in volunteering their time to the Kiva cause. We are currently recruiting for Team Leaders, and this is an opportunity to volunteer from anywhere in the world while utilizing skills related to language, international development and microfinance. With your Peace Corps background we thought you might have an interesting network to share this position with.

      >A Little Bit About Us
      >Kiva’s Review and Translation Program relies on over 300 volunteers to edit, translate, and thoroughly review loan profiles that our Field Partners have posted to the Kiva website. Each profile provides a brief overview of the entrepreneur's background and their microloan use. This personal component is what helps to connect Kiva borrowers with Kiva lenders.

      >To keep our volunteer teams working smoothly, we are looking for highly committed volunteers to lead teams of up to 35 members. This remote volunteer opportunity is ideal for someone who would like to use their professional skills to help create social impact through Kiva.

Applicants do not need to speak a second language to qualify, but we have a special need for Spanish-speaking applicants who speak English at a native level.
