Hello dear readers,

My name is Yelena and I'm a Kiva fellow working with Komak Credit Union this summer. I created this blog so that Komak could easily connect with the international community and especially with Kiva lenders to facilitate understanding about Azerbaijan and the unique challenges its citizens face. The author of this blog will be Afitab, whose role at Komak is both as Kiva coordinator and as human resource administrator. Besides, she's an 18 year old girl through whose divining eyes you can experience Azerbaijan and microfinance :P

For a brief introduction you can read my posts on the fellows blog about Why microfinance is important for Azerbaijan and my interview with Aydin, the director of Komak.

Kiva love,
Yelena :)
