Important Information

Please note that Kiva considers loans from this Field Partner, ADEPHCA, to be particularly high risk. This organization is very small and started working with Kiva before certain core risk and due diligence policies were put into place. ADEPHCA organization would not fit under Kiva’s current partnerships criteria because they do not have any audited financial statements, they do not have established internal controls, and they currently have no other sources of funding than Kiva. Kiva continues to allow ADEPHCA to raise funds on the website for two reasons. First, if Kiva were to abruptly end the partnership we believe there would be a higher risk of loss for lenders, since cutting off the Kiva funding source would put ADEPHCA in a financially distressed position. In addition, since ADEPHCA provides loans in some of the poorest and most remote areas of Nicaragua where there are almost no other options for funding, we believe these loans could still be of interest to lenders even considering the increased risk.
