Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

We loan because...
we read a book, Half the Sky, which inspired us to support microfinancing for women.

About us
As nine educated, professional women we want to give others opportunities to improve their economic and educational lives.
