Help us reach $600,000 by December 31!

Dear Kiva Lender,

Kiva facilitates loans to more than 4,000 borrowers every week, but since Kiva doesn't take a fee on your loans we rely on donations from lenders like you to keep doing this important work. If every Kiva lender seeing this banner pitched in $20 for our Donation Drive, we'd hit our goal of $600,000 by Dec 31! Your support helps us make a global impact.

In appreciation, Chelsa Bocci, Sr. Director, Community

We loan because...
Raffaele lived the immigrant's dream and believed anyone willing to work hard deserved a chance to fulfill his or her dreams.

About us
We are friends and family of Raffaele deRitis. Born in Fara Filiorum Petri, Italy, Raffaele traveled the world in search of opportunity. Raffaele's generous and joyful spirit, even in the face of adversity, affected us all in some way. His desire to help anyone willing to take a chance lives on through us.
