We loan because...
For as little as $25, we can help women entrepreneurs right in our own backyard.

About us
Continuing what she began as First Lady of California, Maria Shriver and A Woman’s Nation are partnering with Kiva, the world's first person-to-person microlending website, to empower thousands of women across America to become more financially independent. Our partnership shows that every loan you make to a woman entrepreneur – even $25 – will make a real difference.

As "The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink"* states, 1 in 3 American women lives on or near the brink of poverty. By starting or expanding her own business, a woman can lift herself and her family off the brink. JOIN US in moving women and families forward!

A Woman’s Nation™ is a nonprofit organization founded by Maria Shriver that imagines a new way forward for women and men, girls and boys. Through its multimedia initiatives and innovative partnerships, A Woman's Nation informs, inspires, and implements bold ideas into action with the goal of creating a culture where all lives and all work are respected, recognized, and valued.
