Hello all,

Next Tuesday, February 17, Engineers for a Sustainable World (ESW)
will be hosting a speaker from Kiva.org, the world's first
peer-to-peer micro-lending website. This event will be an excellent
opportunity for anyone interested in microfinance, social
entrepreneurship, or service work in the developing world to learn
more about what has been one of the most successful (and well-known)
ideas integrating those three fields. Please see the speaker bio and
flyer below for more information, and we hope to see you all there!

Sincerely,
ESW
