Help us reach $600,000 by December 31!
$234,407

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. For a limited time, your donation of $35 or more will also be MATCHED, doubling your impact. 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! Please help us reach our goal!

We loan because...
We loan in memory of our grandmothers, mothers, or any other woman who has been an inspiration for us.

About us
We are people, around the world, who have benefited from knowing strong, caring, wise or otherwise wonderful women.
