    Thursday tour options

    Mission District Microfinance walkbegins at 3:00pm

    1) Native Hand by Hand with Rosa (Opportunity Fund borrower)
    3337 23rd St (between Mission St & Bartlett St)
    Contact: Rosa, 415-285-2018
    Activity:
    1. We will spend about 5 minutes listening to Rosa's story. I'll do the translating and ask her simple questions about her business and her experience with Opportunity Fund. There should be time for questions, but it needs to be made very clear that the Milepoint team should not ask her personal questions about her finances: her loan payments, her FICO score, income, revenue, etc. aren't appropriate topics. I encourage them to ask questions about her dreams for the future of her business, her interest in crafts, or about her experience moving here from Ecuador, or other general questions that won't be too personal.
    2. We'll have some time to browse through the shop. She has some beautiful crafts there, so it should be fun! Please remind everyone to have cash on hand (rather than credit cards).

    Activity: This is a great opportunity for the lending team to see a domestic MFI and to better understand our partnership.

I'll give a brief overview about Opportunity Fund and our partnership with Kiva, and pass out some client stories and informational packets.

    Might I suggest the Cuban or Reuben wraps at TJs? I swore the last time I ate the Cuban Wrap, I saw the Baby Jesus.

    Is there parking at the KIVa HQ if I were to drive right there from SJC?

    For the 10 VX auction winners, do we also have to pay the $25 VX tour fee, or is that fee already included because of our auction win?

    yes, there is parking in the area as it is situated near the new convention center. The building itself does not have parking IIRC.

    I have to check with the Raffle Committee. The $25 fee will offset (though not completely) the cost of food at the break and bus for the tour.

    AFAIK, the $25 is charged for the default VX tour, so everyone needs to pay that. ;)
    The special auction tour is paid for separately!

    You will need to pay this. Ideally, by giving me cash that morning, but credit cards will also be accepted.

    You will generally be able to charge things. We will have an iPad/iPhone with a card swipe available at most events.

    Very much so. While I wasn't present for OWMD, I'm told the level of swiping was scary.

    OK, waiting for the gang at the Public House. Cask Ale night here: $3 cask ales all night. Kiva DOers better get here soon, or I might drink this place dry.
