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
