PBS Show Frontline World to Feature Kiva

Posted on October 31, 2006

Kiva.orgAs you all know by now, I am a big fan of Kiva. Allowing the average person to make microfinance loans is a huge step forward for microfinance. It not only means more people will get the funds they need it also means more people will be able to learn about microfinance first hand which is very powerful.

If you want to learn more about Kiva and hear their story please tune into the PBS program Frontline/World tonight (Tuesday, October 31). Use this station finder to figure out when the program will air in your area (program may be listed as “Burma: State of Fear”). For your convenience, here are the air times/stations for some major metropolitan areas (all times are local):

Boston: WGBH Channel 2 at 9pm
Chicago: WTTW Channel 11 at 9pm
San Francisco: KQED Channel 9 at 9pm
New York: WNET Channel 13 at 9pm
Los Angeles: KCET Channel 28 at 9pm

You can check out a preview of the show beforehand and you will also be able to watch the episode online if you can’t make the broadcast tonight or you live outside the U.S. It should be a great show and I hope it will encourage all of you to make a loan.

    The show was amazing! I’m super excited about what KIVA’s doing and I’m going to get involved really soon. Thanks for posting about them!

    Hey,

    I’m a big fan of Kiva too. It’s great that Frontline was able to spread their story.

    I sell wristbands on my website to support Kiva’s operating budget: http://damnation-inc.com/order.php?item=k001

    It looks like kiva.org is back online now after getting pounded. Hopeufully they’ll be able to continue to manage increased traffic.
