We loan because...
We want to help families around the world to start businesses or expand existing ones so that they may better support themselves and their children and of course to help the MFI's become well established everywhere. We also hope to help bring microfinance to child sponsorship. Kiva can also be a good way to save up money for your sponsor children’s Special Needs Gifts and then help two families instead of just one!

Here are the following countries that both Kiva & Children International currently operate in: THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, GUATEMALA, HONDURAS, MEXICO, AND THE PHILIPPINES.

About us
We are a group of people from around the world helping to overcome poverty through child sponsorship as well as through microfinance. Children International’s sponsorship program serves more than 300,000 needy children in 11 countries, including CHILE, COLOMBIA, THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, ECUADOR, GUATEMALA, HONDURAS, INDIA, MEXICO, THE PHILIPPINES, ZAMBIA, AND THE UNITED STATES (LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS). Some of the benefits that sponsorship provides are medical and dental care, educational assistance, Youth Programs, nutrition programs, clothing and shoes, and even scholarships and much more. Also, Children International allows sponsors to help their children's families to start or expand a business (if the family is able to and would like to) by sending them a Special Needs Gift for an Income Generating Project. You may of course send money for other items like food or clothing or whatever your sponsored child's or families special needs are and it is up to you whether you want to specify what the gift is for or you may leave it up to the family to decide. Some sponsors help with home repairs or even have helped build the family a house! (Check out www.aurashouse.com). CI has a great website, blog, and a Google group for those who aren't aware. This team is open to everyone.
