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

About us
We came together with 3 community enterprises, Kiva, Hub Bay Area, and The David Brower Center, to celebrate the remarkable achievement of 4 years and almost 100 million dollars in loans that Kiva has realized since its creation. The 100 lenders on this team were present at the party and made a loan on November 3rd, 2009 at the David Brower Center in Berkeley, CA!
