We loan because...
Centralians have big hearts! We are excited to be part of people's hopes and dreams around the world! We love creativity, entrepreneurship, drive and vision, and we love making a difference.

We value the sense of community that Centralia has and we see that in the Kiva community as well. We are happy to be a part of that community.

About us
Did you know there are at least twelve Centralias in the US--and one in Canada?! For a short time there was a mining community in Florida called Centralia as well. We have a Centralia, Illinois; Centralia, Kansas; Centralia, Missouri; Centralia, Pennsylvania; Centralia, Washington and Centralia, Ontario, Canada, and many more.

Together we've produced coal and corn, basketball players and playwrights, artists and architects, actors and administrators, railroad workers and retail workers, gardeners and all around good folks.

So if you have a Centralia connection--(or just wish you did) this is the group for you! Go Orphans! Go Tigers! Go Panthers!! Gooooooo Centralia!!!

Location: Centralia!
