Kiva Internship Program
The Kiva Internship Program and Kiva Staff are dedicated to providing a rich, educational experience for those interested in dedicating 6-8 months working on mission focused projects. Kiva provides its interns with a robust and microfinance-focused Internship Program, while interns work with staff to own and participate in key initiatives. Internship classes begin each year in January, May and August.
Kiva Fellows Program
Kiva Fellows travel to and live in the host country of one of our partner microfinance institutions (MFI) for a minimum of 12 weeks. By journaling on the behalf of our MFI partner, Kiva Fellows are able to convey the impact on the entrepreneur of a Kiva loan. For more information and the application, visit the Kiva Fellows Program site.
Review and Translation Program
Kiva Editors and Translators volunteer from their own homes for at least two hours per week editing, translating, and thoroughly reviewing loan profiles from around the world for publication on the Kiva website.
If you have a background in editing, technical writing, or journalism, you may be able to support Kiva’s mission by reviewing and lightly editing loan profiles. Visit Kiva Editing Program for registration and additional information.
If you are a native or native-level English speaker and have high-level proficiency in a foreign language, you may be able to support Kiva’s mission by translating loan profiles. Visit Kiva Translation Program for registration and additional information.
