Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

We loan because...
We want to make a difference, and believe that micro-loans are a great way to empower people and reduce poverty worldwide.

About us
In cycling from Ottawa to Halifax, nearly 1500 km, in ten days, we want to promote the work of micro-loans, and encourage and inspire people to lend through Kiva, and make a sustainable and measurable difference.
