Office Space

Kiva works with over 193 Field Partners in 68 different countries. As Kiva Fellows, we have the privilege of working directly with these partners in their offices.  You can bet that the definition of "office" ranges pretty wildly across the globe, from cubicle hell to patios with mountain views.  We wanted to open the door (no pun intended) to our offices  and work lives to show you what they are like--the good, the bad, and the "that's interesting".

Why not make a loan right now through one of these fantastic partners?

Jada Tullos Anderson

Jada firmly believes the best way to help others is to allow them to help themselves. Growing up in the Texas Pineywoods with a family of hobby farmers and raising animals for 4-H gave Jada a love for agriculture and the environment. After graduating from Texas A&M, she worked for John Deere and then volunteered and worked with the Red Cross where she was privileged to help those affected by events like the 2001 terrorist attacks. Wanting to learn even more about the natural world, she worked as an environmental scientist and earned a Master of Environmental Management degree from Duke, focusing on energy. She’s excited to work with a well-established group like KADET in Nairobi where she hopes to apply her analytical mind to finding efficiencies in their processes and explore local farming and off-grid energy. Jada is grateful to her husband, family and friends for their unending encouragement and enthusiasm.
