We loan because...
we are a diverse group of people with diverse reasons for participating on Kiva.org, but with a unifying desire to alleviate poverty around the world through making microloans to the hard working poor.

About us
We are a community for lenders by lenders, originally started to extend the reach of those who participated in our lender forums at KivaFriends.org. While that forum is no longer active, we welcome all Kiva.org lenders to join together here.
