We loan because...
Texans are big-hearted generous people.

About us
We live in Texas, or we used to, or someday we will. * We were born in Texas, or our parents were, or our children will be. * We just moved here from a neighboring state, or our great-grandparents came here many years ago from a country far, far away, or our people have always been here. * We are as various and sundry as the state of Texas itself. We come from many different backgrounds and from different towns. * We come together to lend through Kiva, to make a difference in this world. * Please join us.
