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 loan because:
I think it's important to give a hand up, particularly to other women (and other parents), whenever we can. It's only by sheer, dumb luck that my family was born where we were and have had some of the opportunities that we have. It's our responsibility to share that good fortune as much as we can.
Since we started this in 2007, my daughter, Hayden, has helped me choose who we loan money to. She favours mums with kids in primary school and shorter loan terms, so we can relend faster (smart kid!). She is developing a social conscience at a very early age!
I work in corporate sponsorship. I assist companies to make good decisions about how to spend their money. I also write books and teach companies how to spend their sponsorship money wisely, as well as teaching organisations how to raise money.
