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...
I am the son of a powerful, successful woman who was herself the daughter of a strong, determined, independent and successful woman. I have never known a life without the presence and partnership of such women. It is exactly the kind of woman I married and have had as my partner and best friend for thirty years.
I have noted in my travels around the world that the places that are most desperate: impoverished, uneducated, lacking in technology, devoid of democratic freedoms and processes, repressed - these are all places where the subjugation of women are the common norm. Conversely, I have never seen a community in which women flourish that hasn't been a progressive, cohesive and relatively happy community.
I am therefore honored to be a team leader with FITE and join their mission to empower women everywhere and provide them the tools to journey to their fullest potential. And I invite men everywhere to become part of this work. The women in my life, as well as my father, have shown me that much of being a man is determined by how we see and treat the women in our lives. Too many men have failed in this. So, many more need to step up. Thanks for taking a step.
