We loan because...
making micro-loans to people all over the world allows them to lift themselves out of poverty rather than requiring charity. We believe that sharing and thus empowering others is to the benefit of us all. That's at the heart of Kiva, as well as at the heart of open source software.

About us
Open source software comes with the liberty to use, study, improve and share the software any way you want, made concrete and reliable by an OSI-approved copyright license. It empowers you to control your own world without needing permission from anyone else to make your life better.
