Happy New Year, join us in January!

January meeting: 1/17 at 5:30 pm – Amy Ventura of Kiva Rochester @ The Gluten Free chef blog Kitchen – 50 W. Main Street

Note the new location and later start time! We’ll be meeting at 540 W Main, where Calvin Eaton of the Gluten Free Chef Blog will tell us a bit about his experience as one of the early Kiva Rochester success stories before we hear from Amy Ventura on the Kiva program as a whole. We’ve also taken your feedback and will be experimenting with a later start time (5:30pm rather than 4pm) to accommodate more schedules. Hope you can join us in the New Year!

Kiva is an international crowdfunding nonprofit that started much of its work in impoverished countries but has recently built a presence in the US. They offer no fee, interest free loans to local entrepreneurs by aggregating small loans from other members of the community. The Mayors Office was able to bring Kiva to town by offering a $100,000 grant to match loans made by community members dollar for dollar up to $5,000 per loan.

Amy Ventura from the Mayor’s Office was instrumental in bringing Kiva to Rochester and will join us in January to talk about some of the early wins from the Kiva program and ways that community members can support the projects.  More info and RSVP here.
