Help us reach $600,000 by December 31!
$366

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 a vision of a healthier, more compassionate and sustainable world. Hard work is often not enough to escape poverty and we gladly welcome the opportunity to give people and their businesses a fighting chance. Our team focus is on making loans to borrowers who don't use animals in their businesses.

About us
We're vegetarians and vegans, and those thinking about making the change. We welcome everyone regardless of their motivation for going veggie.
