Considered ‘high-risk’, it’s often difficult for Georgia’s rural population to get loans for a business. Luckily, Khatuna received a loan from a field partner who focuses on this population and was able to buy chicks to raise and sell eggs.

Abadias loves making toys for schools and institutions in his community of Bello, Colombia. Demand for his speciality wooden toys is growing and his Kiva loans have allowed him to buy raw materials and keep expanding!

Sometimes the silent hard work of a man motivated by love to support his family needs recognition, like Dimitriy in Ukraine. He used his Kiva loans to harvest various fruits and vegetables to provide for his wife and kids.

Kholod and her husband are steadily employed but live with little financial flexibility. She has already 100% repaid the Kiva loan she sought out when her family needed a little extra space to make responsible long-term financial decisions.

Get hands on with our borrowers! Lend to a farmer like Amir in Palestine who used his Kiva loan to grow his produce business.

Inspired to find more meaning in her life, Tracey served in the United States Navy for 20 years. As a disabled veteran and single mother, she was inspired to help women in need of stable income and grew her eco-friendly cleaning business.
A loan of $6,000 helps me growing my eco-friendly cleaning business and provide women in need with a stable income.

In Myanmar with our field partner Proximity Design, local borrowers are included in overseeing the loan process. Daw Swe is a committee member who used her recent loan to buy two pigs.

Empower people around the world with a $25 loan
Introduction
We are a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world.

We envision a world where all people - even in the most remote areas of the globe - hold the power to create opportunity for themselves and others.

We believe providing safe, affordable access to capital to those in need helps people create better lives for themselves and their families.
