You are key to helping us inspire others to join in an important global mission to connect people through crowdfunded lending and help alleviate poverty.
Kiva is different from traditional charities because you get to choose who to support, and your contribution is a loan, not a donation. 100% of your loans go to support borrowers.
By lending as little as $25, anyone can help a borrower start or grow a business, go to school, access clean energy or make their dreams a reality.
Dreams are universal, opportunity is not.
Lend as little as $25 to create opportunity for people around the world.
It’s a loan not a donation; so when you’re repaid you can use the money again.
We don’t take a cut of loans, but cover our costs through optional donations.
