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! Your support helps us make a global impact.

In appreciation, Chelsa Bocci, Sr. Director, Community

We loan because...
We believe in Microfinance and the impact it is making in alleviating poverty both locally and around the globe. We desire to empower individuals to make better lives for themselves and their families as they develop their businesses.

We remember Jesus' words in Matthew 25 as he says : "Whatever you do for the least of these, you do unto me" and we strive to live out his calling on our lives to aid the poor and the hurting.

About us
We are a group of college students from Point Loma Nazarene University at various stages in our academic careers-- all seeking to learn more about microfinance initiatives and become more involved in this incredible tool.
