KVCAP: Community Investors Initiative...

Jul 3, 2016 by

Hello! Thank you for considering joining the Community Investors Initiative, which is hosted by The Poverty Action Coalition. The Poverty Action Coalition is a local group of people who came together to alleviate poverty, and the Community Investors Initiative is our first major project.
