Kiva lenders, like Worldwide-Accom, 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.
Join us and make a loan today.
- Choose a borrower.
Your loan reaches borrowers via our Field Partners, who vet, distribute, and administer each loan.
- Follow your loan.
You’ll get periodic updates about the progress of your loan, including repayments as they become available.
- Do it all again!
Any repayments are yours to keep, but we hope you’ll make another loan... or, like Worldwide-Accom, invite someone to Kiva, perhaps with a Kiva Card.
We are a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world.
