Kiva lenders, like françois derbaix, combat poverty daily by making small loans to borrowers around the world. We believe in fair access to affordable capital for people to improve their own lives.
Often only a relatively small amount of money stands in the way of Kiva borrowers and their dreams. Whether it’s a Kenyan farmer who needs $500 in order to double her grain production, or a young Bolivian woman who lacks the $1,500 tuition for nursing school, Kiva lenders provide a hand up to these and countless other borrowers.

You’ll get periodic updates about the progress of your loan, including repayments as they become available.

Any repayments are yours to keep, but we hope you’ll make another loan... or, like françois derbaix, invite someone to Kiva, perhaps with a Kiva Card.
