Help us reach more people in 2016!

Dear Kiva Lender,

Kiva facilitates loans to more than 4,000 borrowers every week, but since 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans we rely on donations from supporters like you to continue this important work. If every Kiva lender seeing this banner pitched in $25 for our Donation Drive, we'd hit our goal of $600,000 by Dec 31! Thanks for your continuing partnership in making the world a fairer place.

In service, Premal Shah, President,
