What our lending community thinks

Being able to lend, then get repaid, and lend over and over again gives great satisfaction. My funds have been lent 12 times over.

Kiva lender

Just made my 11th loan to a single mother in Nicaragua. Constantly blown away by the impact from the same $25 being lent over and over again.
