Connect with Kiva's lender community

Lending teams are self-organized groups built around common interests, school affiliation or location.

Join as many teams as you'd like, and rally around shared lending goals by counting each of your loans at checkout toward the team's impact.

To get started, simply join an existing team or create a new one and invite your friends!
