Two days left to give your feedback to Kiva!
Kiva wants to know what you think it can do to improve the lending experience for our users. We have launched a survey, which asks questions about why users lend, how lending teams can be improved, and what new programs users would like Kiva to adopt. The survey closes at 5pm PST tomorrow (Tuesday, January 26th), and we want as many users to respond as possible.
If you haven't already, please click here to take the 10 minute survey. All responses are completely confidential.
Thanks so much,
