$1 Billion to Women

More than 80% of the Microfinance loans on Kiva empower women in developing countries and beyond to gain the access to capital they need to start new businesses, grow existing businesses, or invest in education for themselves and their children. Globally, women earn 63% less than men and spend three times as many hours on unpaid labor. Lack of financial inclusion means women go unbanked and are unable to obtain access to credit which is a primary constraint to the growth of women-owned businesses. To date, Kiva loans have supported more than 2.7 million women borrowers in all sectors in more than 90 countries. Women who are empowered to make, save, and control their own money make gains for themselves and their communities. They become sources of inspiration for other women and girls trying to make the leap. Support a woman today – just $25 is all it takes to create opportunity for a woman entrepreneur.
