We loan because...
Microlending is a great vehicle to improve the quality of living of people living all over the world.

About us
The Ship for World Youth (SWY) program, operated by Cabinet Office, Government of Japan, is a program that involves youths from Japan and countries around the world. They board the Ship for World Youth, live together, and while on board and when visiting the different countries, they study and discuss common issues from a global perspective and participate in other various activities that involve multi-cultural and multi-national exchange opportunities.

For our team members, we are generally trying to lend to countries that have already participated on the SWY. Not all of the countries that have been on SWY have microfinance loans on Kiva, so please look for countries that were on your ship using the map on the lend page.
