After finishing my Kiva fellowship with EDAPROSPO last week, I moved out of Lima and into the province of Junín in the sierras of Peru. My time with Microfinanzas PRISMA is quite short and so I’ve engaged in a whirlwind tour of meeting entrepreneurs, collecting their stories, and posting journal updates. As the PRISMA office in Tarma services the entire northern half of Junín province, the clients are very spread out and thus long hours are a given. The following video is a snapshot of my day on Wednesday, December 17th, 2008. I had to split it into two parts because the upload process is long and with the internet out here, there’s not much worse than waiting 40 minutes to upload a video only to have the internet cut out with 20 seconds left (happened three times). If you go to the YouTube site, you can watch the videos in higher-quality.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the insight into what a typical day of a Kiva Fellow entails (at least in Tarma, Peru for Microfinanzas PRISMA).
