Changing Lives

Join us for an engaging perspective from two speakers —Kiva donor and a Kiva recipient. Detroit is the first Kiva City in the United States, a program where Kiva works with community organizations to provide microloans to small businesses. Kiva Detroit is the product of a partnership between Michigan Corps, ACCION USA, Knight Foundation and Kiva International.

 DARRYL REDMOND, 

co-chair of the Kiva Detroit Board became involved with Kiva while he was a professor at the University of Michigan. An entrepreneur, a pastor, and former elected political official, he also serves on the Knight Foundation Advisory Board. 

 DELPHIA SIMMONS, 

co-chair of Kiva Detroit, is an inaugural recipient of a Kiva Detroit loan, which is being used to launch Thrive Detroit Street newspaper. She is a Project Manager and Program Director for the Homeless Prevention and Rapid Rehousing Program, funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).
