Love making a difference with Kiva? Your donations keep us running.

Thank you for the impact you’ve made this year! Together we’ve funded more than 170,000 loans and raised more than $120 million for financially excluded people around the world. It costs us more than $3 to facilitate each $25 loan, and we rely on optional donations from individuals like you to cover our costs.

change a life

Each Kiva loan helps people build a better future for themselves and their families.

Loans to women

Women around the world have less access to fair credit—while 46% of men have access to formal financial services, only 27% women do. Support women starting businesses, going to school, leading their communities and building strong families.
