    FRIDAY OCTOBER 25th (please RSVP via conversation)

    for those who wish to meet for the events downtown, please meet at the Marriott SFO hotel lobby at 2:30pm.

    4:00-4:30 - visit Lydali (1455 Market St) Ali Price, a Kiva Zip borrower and Kiva Do 1 coorganizer). Although this event is optional (people can meet directly at Kiva HQ at 4pm), we will need to get names as there will be a coorganized event with Makers on Market. Our visit will be before the full event, to give Ali time to go over their operations.

    walk over to Kiva

    4:30-4:45 - Kiva HQ tour
    445:-5:30 - meet with Kiva Zip, Trustees (Helen Branham from Urban Solutions, and Sabrina Haman from MEDA ) and Borrower (Skincare by Feleciai)
    5:30-7:00 - reception at Kiva (light snacks) - Zip borrower to cater the event
    Food by Cafeto Coffee shop, beer by Pacific Brewing Laboratory ($2/pint)

    7:00 head back to Marriott or enjoy dinner on the town.

    The event will focus on Kiva HQ and Zip

    While events are still being formed, here are some things we plan to do:
    1) visit Lydali - a new venture headed by Ali Price, formerly of Kiva. Lydali.com features artisans and designers from around the world. Lydali is a Kiva Zip borrower (one several MP members are supporting) and we will get a close up view of their vision and operation.

    2) Visit the Kiva HQ. A small walk away from Lydali, we will take a short tour of the Kiva Headquarters in SOMA.

    3) Meet Kiva Zip borrowers and Trustees who refer borrowers to Kiva Zip - learn more about some of the Zip operations and how borrowers are referred to Kiva. Its an exciting way to learn more about the system with real people in the field!

    4) reception - still working on it, but one possibility is to have the reception at Kiva itself! TBD.

    Arrgh! I have about 6 upcoming itineraries to juggle just now, which is way too many for my addled jet-lagged brain!

    I will arrive at SFO at 15:27 (or as close to that as UA will get me there) and join you all in progress as soon as I can check in and get to where you are.

    Looking forward to it!
