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.

Lending has some advantages compared to charity because the same dollar helps people over and over, each time it is loaned and paid back. Lending puts pressure on me to review the plan, and on the borrower to execute the plan. I think there tends to be a more efficient use of resources.
