We loan because...
We understand that charity works best when combined with sustainability. We hope that microfinancing proves to be an enduring way to improve the condition of people all over the world.

About us
Hello, world. Our team was formed to demonstrate the presence of NYU alumni, students, faculty, staff, and their awesome friends within the Kiva lending community. We are a global collection of lenders and concerned individuals who hope to make a difference in the lives and societies of less advantaged people. The group is open, and people are welcome to join, as desired.
