We loan because...
We want to change the World without predatory practices. We believe microloan interests should be as low as possible: 30% (PY/APR) Maximum. We are the only team we are aware that has this cap.

About us
The team members should be united by our pledge “Not lending through Kiva Partners that charge more than 30% PY/APR for servicing a loan.”
If Kiva Partner, Palestine for Credit & Development (FATEN) can charge 15.3% PY/APR for their loans and still make a profit, there is no reason why a For Profit Non Regulated institutions like Kiva Partner Credituyo should charge 85.9% PY/APR in Mexico. Do you know how high the PY/APR is for the loans you patricipate?
