Kiva's mission is to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. We work at the intersection of technology, business and love...and we're just getting started.
We’ve helped more than 1.6 million people around the world (so far) and earned fans like former President Bill Clinton, Oprah, and comedians Louis C.K. and Amy Poehler along the way!

Volunteer opportunities: We’re looking for our next class of interns. Or support Kiva in the field through our prestigious fellowships. Volunteer remotely on one of Kiva's editing or translation teams, or lead a team of volunteers online.
