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 501c3 nonprofit organization, founded by Maria Shriver, that imagines a new way forward. Through its multimedia initiative, A Woman’s Nation seeks to elevate women and men to a place of equality by creating a more conscious, compassionate, and caring culture where all lives and all work are respected, recognized, and valued. The Shriver Report Project is an initiative of A Woman’s Nation. Learn more at
