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...
We have the priviledge of working, studying, teaching and living at one of the best universities in the world and Kiva is one of the finest ways to help others share in our priviledges
