How it works

1Define your criteria

When you set up a matching account with Kiva, you define exactly where you want the dollars to go – the countries, sectors and causes that are most important to you.

2Badge appears on loans

As Kiva lenders browse through fundraising loans, they’ll see a x2 badge with your display name on borrower profiles that fit your criteria.

3Loans automatically matched

When lenders support a qualifying borrower, a loan for the same dollar amount will also be made from your matching account as long as funds last.
