Trustee: Josh McPaul


Oakland, CA

Why are you interested in becoming a Trustee?
I want to see members of our congregation empowered to start and maintain businesses that make a difference in our community.
How will you determine whether or not the business plans of the Borrower(s) you endorse are sound?
We have not determined this. At the moment it is a case by case basis, but we may develop a board to review business plans in the future.
How will you know whether the Borrower(s) you endorse will have the character to repay a loan?
Through long term relationships, previous business experience and general trustworthiness.
Please describe what type of business, financial, technical or other support you plan on providing to the Borrower(s) you endorse:
Small retail, contractor and work from home businesses.
How will you establish whether the Borrower(s) you endorse are in debt, or have a history of debt? How will what you find affect your endorsement of their loan application?
We will follow Kiva Zip's guidelines in this matter.
