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!

What Kivans have to say

At Kiva, I split my time between our beautiful headquarters in San Francisco, playing fetch with my brilliant colleagues’ dogs and benefiting from our many Brown Bags and speakers, and the field, meeting borrowers and gauging Kiva's impact face-to-face. I am still shocked that I am paid for the privilege of working with an organization as innovative and encouraging as Kiva —Kathleen Bennett, Senior Portfolio Manager, Latin America
