April -- the month of spring, flowers... and taxes.

Repayments make Kiva loans not tax-deductible in the United States. However, donations to Kiva’s operational expenses are! So remember if you made a donation to Kiva last year to declare it on your returns!

For every $1 you donate to Kiva, $9 more in loans is made possible. So not only will you be able to breathe a sigh of relief next April 15, but you’ll be helping people in the process!

If this April 15 is going to be particularly painful for you, do yourself a favor and donate to Kiva! You’ll thank yourself next year!

High five for those tax write offs!
