Zidisha has been selected for an interview with Y Combinator!

Y Combinator was named by Forbes as the top startup incubator and accelerator, and is considered the world’s most prestigious program for game-changing online startups.  Such well-known companies as AirBNB, Dropbox, Scribd and reddit got their start with Y Combinator.

This is the first funding round in which Y Combinator has accepted applications from nonprofits.  An invitation to join Y Combinator’s inaugural round of nonprofit interviews is a strong vote of confidence in Zidisha’s potential to change the world.

Zidisha was selected because we are pioneering a radically new way of connecting individuals in the world’s poorest locations with better opportunities via an international person-to-person lending community.

Supporting such a revolutionary idea is never easy, but the payoff is immense.

It is thanks to the faith and generosity of our borrowers, lenders and volunteers that we have made it this far in making our vision of a world where geography need no longer hold people of merit back from the chance to build a better life.
