Balancing Financial versus Social Returns

Roger Frank, partner, Developing World Markets

"Human impact capital. ... The yield on this is 600 basis points plus 200 basis points of human capital."

Preval Shah, President, Kiva

Kiva is an internet marketplace for MFIs such as Pro Mujer. Today Kiva is a really bad investment or a really great donation, depending on how you want to look at it. Kiva in the future would be something where you could get a risk-adjusted financial return.

300,000 social investors have lent 30 million in the first 2.5 years. Now every 10 days we raise another million dollars on the platform. In about five years our goal is about $1 billion.
