We loan because...
We want to help established and trusted Field Partners, based primarily in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, fund loans to borrowers, with a view to helping larger than average and longer term loans.

This team encourages patience with loans as long as 38 months, so long as the Field Partner has proven stability on Kiva.

About us
Created by members of the Late Loaning Lenders Team, we seek to support loans in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Tajikistan, and Ukraine.

We aim to support longer term and expiring loans in these countries, especially those which otherwise have difficulty raising sufficient funds. Most of all we'd love your help doing this!

We have a perpetual fund at www.kiva.org/lender/slownsteadylenders7930 and all donations welcome
