We loan because...
We loan because we want to give a hand up to folks in developing countries who have articulated plans by which they can build a better life. Kiva is an effective, efficient, transparent, and easy to use mechanism by which we can do this.

About us
Born in 1965 on a spectacular site atop Burnaby Mountain, SFU has become Canada's leading comprehensive university with vibrant campuses in British Columbia's largest municipalities — Vancouver, Burnaby and Surrey — and deep roots in partner communities throughout the province and around the world. www.sfu.ca
Our open team is comprised of students, faculty, staff, retirees, alumni, family and friends who want to help those less fortunate around the world.
