We loan because...
In our current global food system, the first to get left behind in a crisis will be those in developing areas. It is precisely these people whom Kiva gives us the opportunity to help through their loan program.

About us
We are Slow Food supporters who also believe in helping to redistribute opportunity through agricultural and food related loans. We promote and facilitate good, clean and fair development through the work of the Slow Food movement and through our Kiva loans.
