We loan because...
We want to encourage producing and making

About us
We believe, in most emerging countries, producing goods is key to economic growth and prosperity. Unfortunately many Kiva borrowers rely on their retail business to earn a living. They are essentially middleman/woman and in a way only helping themselves and their immediate family. In contrast, producers, makers and artisans create jobs, skilled workers and apprenticeship programs, to name a few. In addition, they spread entrepreneurial spirit, economic prosperity and sustainability for their entire community.
All communities have something to offer. Whether making goods for basic necessities to building technology or creating arts and crafts, Let’s help entrepreneurs who want to help themselves and the people around them. Please join us and let’s make the world a better place through encouraging the spirit of producing, making and artisanship.
