Photos from the Field: Fellows Share their Favorite Shots!

Kiva Fellows have been hard at work these past few months! From India to Tanzania, they have captured some amazing photos of borrowers.

Fellow Natalie Russell captured this photo of Celina, who sells small dry fish in Tanzania.

Claire Eggers, a fellow in India, took this inspiring photo of Ganesh on his mushroom farm.

A woman in Zimbabwe uses Kiva loans to support her clothing store, where Alan Mathers shot this photo. 

Eric Brandt (former fellow, current Kiva staffer!) captured this colorful moment of a woman in Palestine who uses her Kiva loan to buy beads and yarn for her business.

Natalie Russell caught Emelia, a borrower in Tanzania, working (and smiling) at her tailoring business.

We are so thankful to have such passionate fellows working around the globe to further Kiva's mission!
