Map of Kiva lending locations

Where Kiva works

Kiva serves borrowers in more than 80 countries on 5 continents. We’re headquartered in San Francisco, with offices in Nairobi and staff stationed around the world. We also have incredible volunteer fellows working in the field throughout the year.

In addition to all these dedicated Kivans, we would not be able to reach so many communities and scale our impact without the extensive network of Field Partners and Trustees who help connect us with borrowers.

Field Partners do incredible work– they screen borrowers, post loan requests to Kiva for funding, disburse loans on the ground and collect repayments. Most Field Partners are microfinance institutions, but they can also be schools, NGOs or social enterprises. They all share one thing in common: the desire to improve people’s lives through safe, fair access to credit. Learn how to become a Field Partner.

Trustees endorse loans, vouching for borrowers who want to apply for direct loans on Kiva, which are loans that aren’t administered by Field Partners. Learn how to become a Trustee.
