We loan because...
we want to support the bravery and exuberance of Kiva's older entrepreneurs!

About us
We want to celebrate and support those of mature years who, whether through choice or necessity, keep working and struggling to improve their own lives and the lives of others.

We generally define older as 50+, given that in many Kiva countries average life expectancy is between 50 & 70 years.
