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...
Kiva is a perfect fit. Clareo Partners is a consulting firm focusing on innovation and we think that Kiva’s peer-to-peer model for lending is one of the most powerful innovations to raise people out of poverty around the world. Kiva answers the desperate need for credit amongst the poorest of the poor. We understand how important small businesses are to any economy and how market forces can be used to permanently keep people out of poverty in a way that charity cannot.

We also understand how important it is to provide general operating support, so we have made an additional $1,000 donation to Kiva to keep the lights on :)

About us
Our team is made up of the amazing men and women who work for Clareo Partners, our clients and additional friends. From providing small business consulting in Kyrgyzstan to helping one of our clients roll out a micro-franchise initiative in Ghana, Clareo knows that empowering small, local businesses is one of the best routes to sustainable prosperity for all people.
