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...
Living in a country where millions have grown up under oppression and without privilege or equal opportunity, we as privileged and fortunate South Africans acknowledge our responsibility and relish the opportunity to contribute meaningfully toward the support of entrepreneurial endeavor which would otherwise not have been possible.

About us
South Africa is known as "the rainbow nation" as it is a melting pot of cultural, traditional, spiritual, lingual and racial diversity.
