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.

Business Development & Lending
I loan because:
my lifework is firmly based in the belief that supporting under-resourced entrepreneurs is key in building thriving, sustainable, and healthy communities.
I am currently the Interim Executive Director of Mandela Partners - a non-profit organization that works to improve health, create wealth, and build assets through local food enterprises in low-income communities. I am deeply invested in economic development, business advising, accessible capital, and community engagement. I was a KF16 Kiva Fellow in Bolivia!
