We loan because...
We think globally. We recognize that our actions as individuals can have far-reaching impacts on our planet and its people. We understand that the health and prosperity of our families and communities are inextricably linked to the social, economic, and environmental well-being of our fellow Earthlings.

Plus, lending on Kiva is a fun and meaningful way to learn about the world and its people!

About us
Geographers (and fans of geography) share an interest in discovering more about the world. We study the physical and cultural phenomena that interact at or near the surface of the earth. We are concerned with where things are, why phenomena are located in specific spaces and places, why location matters, and how spatial relationships affect people, physical features and systems, and environments.

Location: Everywhere
