As part of Kiva’s “alternative loan types” field partners, they recently teamed up with Agro Capital Management (ACF) in Ukraine. ACF, like many of their non-traditional field partners, offers 0% loans:
ACM is one of our “non-traditional partners” and does charge farmers a small service fee, however they do not charge interest on top of this. The loan amount for each loan will include the fee. I reached out to one my colleague to double check and he confirmed: “This organization is not MFI, thus their business model in not based on interest but on a ‘small service fee’.” If interested, here is their site which you can check out: http://agrocapital.com.ua/index.php/en/
Let me know if you have any other questions and thanks for your support of Kiva borrowers!
