We loan because...
Valerie exemplified helping people around the world. My (her father) first investment in Kiva came through a Christmas gift from Valerie in the form of Kiva money by which I could make microloans. Valerie believed that small changes start from individual small steps. Her passion was to help others, especially the most vulnerable, to develop sustainable, community-based livelihoods. We want to keep her generous spirit alive in us.

About us
