Help us reach $600,000 by December 31!

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! Please help us reach our goal!

We loan because...
"Sometimes a scream is better than a thesis."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

About us
Our favorite loans are to people whose facial expression or body language is better than a thesis.
