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! Thanks for your continuing partnership in making the world a fairer place.

In service, Premal Shah, President, Kiva.org

We loan because...
Benin is a country where about half of the population lives below the international poverty line of a dollar a day; loans through Kiva help the working poor of Benin have a fighting chance in pulling themselves out of poverty.

About us
Like-minded individuals who care about the world and alleviating poverty, especially in places like Benin.
