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.
