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...
we made a personal connection to a Kiva borrower

About us
Kiva's mission is to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. This team is a celebration of those personal connections and an opportunity for people to share their stories about what made them lend to individuals all around the world.
