Anne Lufkin

Regional Manager for the Pacific and Mountain Region
Anne Lufkin-Riaño is the regional manager for the Pacific and Mountain region for the Kiva US Program.  Her initial interest in microfinance began as she helped street children from Colombia build nano-enterprises that would help promote self-sufficiency and break the cycle of poverty for the children as well as their families. More recently, her first-hand experience of  entrepreneurship familiarized her with navigating the barriers faced by immigrant business owners face every day. Anne is passionate about solving financial exclusion for immigrant and refugee populations in the US.  In addition to managing the Pacific and Mountain region, she spends her time at Kiva developing programs that support the most financially, linguistically and technologically excluded entrepreneurs.  Anne has a BA from Michigan State University in bilingual education and an MBA from Georgetown University.   She is fluent in Spanish and has a background in international development and has worked as consultant for Deloitte & Touche, the Inter-American Development Bank and USAid.
