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.

Kiva Lender Ms. Whiffin
Anmore, British Columbia, Canada
Grade 4/5 Class
I loan because:
We are a grade 4/5 class at Anmore Elementary. We are learning about the world and how we can make a difference. We have been lending to Kiva now for over a year. In the first year, we raised over $1100 as a class. This year, we have already reloaned the money that has come back to us (approximately $775). My students this year have also embarked on their own fundraising efforts to give them a chance to connect to the project. Amazingly, they have raised over $1300 so far!!! The fun part is making the loan! Each of us chooses a project and researches the region, community and business to determine which project we will support. The kids are so aware of the world! They also use statistics to justify their decisions and have become amazing at working with all kinds of numbers. Hurray for Kiva!
