Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

We loan because...
We want to remember Valerie Boshears. She died of cancer in 2002 at the young age of 47 and never complained and was courageous to the end.

About us
We all knew Val through the theater. She designed and sewed costumes for the San Jose Children's Musical Theater. Her daughter, RikkiAnn, performed with many of our children.
