A crash course in changing the world.
Here at the Kiva Virtual Office on Aloft Nonprofit Commons Island there's a quiet before the next day of active trading and loans. Over 48000 came in according to the counter at the door and there's no sign of stopping as peer to peer microloans become the standard for middle class development.
Virtual offices have been around for 15-20 years in various forms but we are now seeing most companies and organizations doing business regularly through 3D web experiences. KIVA advisors encourage loan partners to meet in office spaces upstairs to connect and talk about their progress together. Transparency and embodied virtual experience provide a deep sense of connection on both sides of the exchange.
Thankfully there's no racism at this KIVA office and green elven fairies are welcome, even if they wear kimonos and mohawks.
