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 Nigel
Taliesin, Machynlleth, Ceredigion, United Kingdom
I loan because:
I have a good life, and all the material things I need. Many other people don't, and this is a practical way to help individuals make their lives better, and each person who helps themself and their family out of poverty makes the world a slightly better place. Kiva lending isn't even really a 'charity' - a loan effectively costs us nothing and makes much better use of any 'spare' money than leaving it sitting in a bank earning 0.01% interest. For real 'charity' I support Wateraid at www.wateraid.org - helping people who don't even have the absolute basics of clean water and safe sanitation.
I create web sites for local businesses and organisations, in particular bilingual sites in Welsh and English.
