We loan because...
we want to provide a hand up rather than a hand out to women around the world.

About us
A chance meeting at a bar in Luang Prabang, Laos, led me to Kiva. I have travelled extensively and wanted to help women to help themselves.
I chose this name for several reasons:
* it reflects the team's aim to support loans for women
* it plays homage to my hometown of Melbourne, where a popular band is called Something for Kate, and
* it's a play on my name.
If you enjoy travelling and want to help women create a better life for themselves, please join!
