Donate to Kiva

It’s simple: Kiva can’t help borrowers without your donations to support us. Since 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans, we rely on donations to continue this important work. More than two-thirds of our donations come from individual lenders.

Loans vs. donations

Kiva never takes a cut of loans, optional donations fund our operations.
