We loan because...
For as little as $25, we can help women entrepreneurs right in our own backyard.

About us
Continuing what she began as First Lady of California, Maria Shriver and A Woman’s Nation are partnering with Kiva, the world's first person-to-person microlending website, to empower thousands of women across America to become more financially independent. Our partnership shows that every loan you make to a woman entrepreneur – even $25 – will make a real difference.

As "The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink"* states, 1 in 3 American women lives on or near the brink of poverty. By starting or expanding her own business, a woman can lift herself and her family off the brink. JOIN US in moving women and families forward!

A Woman's Nation ™ exists to generate and actualize game-changing ideas focused on the value, needs and well-being of women and their families — in the home, the workplace and as caretakers on the front lines of humanity.

Our mission is to build a more informed, conscious and compassionate society. We do this by joining forces with creative global thinkers and influential organizations to implement our culture-shifting projects and multimedia initiatives.

We are igniting ideas into action. We are A Woman’s Nation™.

Each month we feature an entrepreneur who takes our 21st Century Boss Pledge. To learn more please visit
