Kiva Lending Team: Stoic Action
We loan because...
Investing in your goals will create your future.
Microfinancing is a means of getting small loans to small entrepreneurs that larger banks cannot economically reach. Kiva is a non-profit website that allows you to lend as little as $25 to a specific low-income entrepreneur across the globe.
You choose who to lend to - whether a baker in Tajikistan, a goat herder in Uganda, a farmer in Peru, a restaurateur in Cambodia, or a tailor in Bolivia - and as they repay the loan, you get your money back. Once you're a part of the team, you can choose to have a future loan on Kiva "count" towards our team's impact. The loan is still yours, and repayments still come to you. You can also choose to have the loan show up in our team's collective portfolio, so our team's overall impact will grow!
Important Team Disclosure: Kiva loans are not securities. Kiva does not guarantee lenders that their loans will be repaid, and Kiva does not pay interest to lenders. Kiva lenders should have no expectation of a financial return on their loans. Kiva loans do not pay interest, are not an investment, and are not recommended as an investment.
We invest in a global community.

Violet received a loan from Eliyahu to pay for farm inputs and to hire labourers to grow more crops on the farm, earn more profits from sales, and use it to set a good foundation for her children.
