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...
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a loving card from a friend or a stranger, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

About us
We all have the luxury of running water, warm bed and a roof over our heads. We have free medical and a roof over our heads. We take time to share a kindness with others.
