Each week, Kiva crowdfunds $1 million in loans for small businesses around the world to alleviate poverty.
As the organization's first Media Fellow, I took a series of portraits of Kiva borrowers building business with Kiva capital in East Africa. Kiva uses the photos extensively in its website and social media channels to create connections with lenders.
My photos also also featured prominently in Kiva's 2016 brand and website refresh, particularly those of empowered smallholder farmers in Kenya and Uganda.
Profiled Kiva partners include Grameen AppLab, Honey Care, Juhudi Kilimo, KOMAZA, Sanergy, Solar Sister and Strathmore University, among others.
