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! Thanks for your continuing partnership in making the world a fairer place.

In service, Premal Shah, President, Kiva.org

We loan because...
We feel our lives have benefitted from the generosity of others and want to "Pay It Forward' by helping others through Kiva loans. Join us if you want to return some favours to the world.

About us
The cost of one 'dinner out for two' is enough for people working their way out of poverty to have the chance to improve their lives. Repaid loans can continue to be relent over and over into the future, helping many hundreds in our lifetimes.
