Social Impact Project for Software Engineering Experteer for Financial Inclusion (Aries)
Project Description and Impact
More than 1.7 billion people around the world are unbanked and can’t access the financial services they need. Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 in San Francisco, with a mission to expand financial access to help underserved communities thrive.
We do this by crowdfunding loans and unlocking capital for the underserved, improving the quality and cost of financial services, and addressing the underlying barriers to financial access around the world. Through Kiva's work, students can pay for tuition, women can start businesses, farmers are able to invest in equipment and families can afford needed emergency care.
This volunteer project is ideal for an independent and curious problem solver looking to make their mark in contributing to our open source technologies. In expressing interest in this project, we would like to hear what your thoughts are on how you'd like to support this project need.
By participating in the MovingWorlds Institute, you will first learn social impact frameworks and human-centered design before putting your existing skills and new knowledge to action.
This project accepts virtual experteers.
