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.

Short-term loans

These loans are for 16 months or less. Kiva borrowers benefit from loans that give them more time to pay back, but if shorter repayment term is important to you these businesses are a great option.
