We loan because...
We have seen and lived in communities who are desperate for the opportunities that can come from investments in local, sustainable, small business development.

About us
People (and their family members) who have served in the U.S. Peace Corps in a variety of different countries around the world and who have learned the value of continued involvement in the micro-enterprise program espoused by KIVA.
