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.

I own & manage two businesses: one a consulting business helping Chinese businesses come to America (and vice versa) and another that sells an over the counter (OTC) medical good.
