Kiva Zip held an information session for trustees and borrows at Pittsburgh's Rivers Club on Monday evening. After a surprise speech from Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald, more than 25 people settled in to learn about the nuts and bolts of what Kiva Zip is and the do's and do not's of the Kiva Zip loan application. What was no surprise was that nearly every attendee came away both interested in becoming a trustee or a borrower and enthusiastic about the possibilities Kiva Zip brings to the greater Pittsburgh metropolitan area.
