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.
Your donation of any size makes a difference. Thanks for investing in a better future,
Premal Shah, President & Co-Founder, Kiva

We loan because...
We believe in the value and the power of direct, one-to-one assistance. The risk to us as individuals is meaningless, but the value to the people being helped is enormous.

About us
We are simply residents of, former residents of, or people who love, the state of Vermont, a small but incredibly beautiful part of the United States.

Location: Vermont
