What is Kiva, and how does it work?
We're glad you asked!
Kiva is an international nonprofit, with a mission to expand financial access to help underserved communities thrive and in some cases, provide relief when crises may arise.
They do this by crowdfunding loans and unlocking capital for the underserved, improving the quality and cost of financial services, and addressing the underlying barriers to financial access around the world. Through Kiva's work, students can pay for tuition, women can start businesses, farmers are able to invest in equipment and families can afford needed emergency care.
By lending as little as $25 on Kiva, you can be part of the solution and make a real difference in someone’s life... and, 100% of every dollar you lend on Kiva goes to funding loans!
