How it works

1Distribute promo codes

Kiva generates a list of promo codes from your corporate account, which are then shared with your employees or customers.

3Get repaid

As borrowers repay, funds return to your Kiva account and can be used to create additional codes or a tax-deductible donation to Kiva.

2Make a loan

When your employees or customers redeem their promo codes, they’re given the power to choose who to support.
