About Kiva.org

Kiva is an international nonprofit based in San Francisco, with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty.

It's a loan, not a donation

Lending on Kiva creates a partnership of mutual dignity and makes it easy to touch more lives with the same dollar.

Choosing where to make an impact

Whether lending within your community, or halfway around the world, Kiva creates the opportunity to play a special part in someone else's story.

Lifting one, to lift many

When a Kiva loan enables someone to grow a business and create opportunity for themselves, it creates opportunities for others as well.

Start Your Own Team

Anyone can start a lending team on Kiva.org and start making a difference in the lives of aspiring business owners and do their part to alleviate international poverty.
