Hi, I'm a finance blogger who is interested in how different financial tools, including microfinance, can deliver real value to consumers.

Currently a Master of Public Administration (MPA) student at Bowling Green State. University in Bowling Green, Ohio, USA. Specializing in International Development with focus on sub-Saharan Africa.
I work in Advertising Operations at Zillow, but LOVE microfinance. I'm always interested in startups, especially non-profits, reach out to me if you're working on anything cool!
Throughout the month of March, Vittana has been running their first — but not their last –Â March Microfinance Madness campaign with the goal of getting friends, family, and co-workers coming together to raise money to send kids to school. For those of you not familiar with Vittana,they are enabling students from around the globe to get access to higher education for the first time through student loans.Â They’ve gotten a fair amount of interest for their campaign, including TechCrunch, Redfin, Buddy.tv, and TeachStreet, but are running into the home stretch with only 6 days left in March and want to put the after burners on.
If you’d like to loan to a student in Paraguay, Vietnam, or Nicaragua, I just created a “myKRO.org” group on Vittana – just sign up, find a student such as Huyen Thi Hoang in Vietnam, and lend!Â Remember, every little bit helps!
