Loans That Change Lives

Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 and based in San Francisco, that celebrates and supports people looking to create a better future for themselves, their families and their communities.

By lending as little as $25 on Kiva, anyone can help a borrower start or grow a business, go to school or realize their potential. And since it’s a loan, not a donation, you can recycle the same funds over and over to multiply your impact.

Through Kiva, each of us has the power to create opportunity and help others work towards their dreams— whether it’s a loan to a farmer in rural Kenya or a rooftop farmer in Detroit.

How Kiva works:

  1. Choose a borrower. Browse categories of borrowers — people looking to grow businesses, go to school, switch to
    clean energy and more.
  2. Make a loan. Help fund a loan with as little as $25.
  3. Get repaid. Kiva borrowers have a 97% repayment rate.
  4. Repeat! Recycle your funds to support another borrower or withdraw them.

Kiva’s Vision

Kiva envisions a world where all people hold the power to create opportunity for themselves and others.

Kiva believes lending alongside thousands of others is one of the most powerful and sustainable ways to create economic
and social good.
