About us
Kiva U-College is an international network of microfinance clubs that gives university students an easy way to play a direct role in changing lives. Kiva U's mission is to educate students about the potential impact of microfinance, and to encourage microlending through Kiva's lending teams.

Kiva U is world-wide and it continues to grow. In the coming school year, Kiva U will provide its chapters with the infrastructure and resources they need to establish a permanent presence on campus. The program will offer its chapters a variety of opportunities to participate in competitions and conferences, and will strongly encourage intra-university collaboration.
