The Role of a Kiva CAM

A Kiva CAM serves as the primary local contact for Kiva within a market. Their role breaks down in 4 key ways: 

Spreading Word About Kiva:

We want Kiva to be a household name in the local small business and entrepreneurial community. Through partnerships with Trustees, events, marketing and engaging with past borrowers, the Kiva CAM drives growth within his or her market. 

Coaching Kiva Applicants: 

The Kiva CAM will connect with and support every applicant within a market. They are responsible for setting expectations about the Kiva process, helping to craft strong profiles, coaching the borrower through fundraising, and engaging with borrowers throughout their repayment. 

Supporting Repayment: 

After a borrower's loan is funded, a Kiva CAM will continue to engage with that entrepreneur to assure they are able to make their repayments and to connect them to local resources and opportunities that can support their business's growth. 

Engaging The Local Community: 

A Kiva CAM is constantly out and about. They are connecting with local leaders of the economic development space, attending events, facilitating connections between lenders and borrowers, and engaging with all types of Kiva stakeholders. 

We're currently recruiting for our next class of Kiva CAMs! We're looking for small to mid-size American cities who have small business communities that can benefit from Kiva's loan product and who are willing to put forth resources to host a Kiva CAM.
