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...
Kiva is an online service connecting you to families in developing countries. Every dollar you lend go directly to the entrepreneurs - no intermediaries. When the family return the principal, you could re-lend again. It is a more sustainable way of building infrastructure and know-how in developing countries. It's social change from the inside-out by empowering the locals.
