We believe providing safe, affordable access to capital to those in need helps people create better lives for themselves and their families.
Kiva works with microfinance institutions on five continents to provide loans to people without access to traditional banking systems. One hundred percent of your loan is sent to these microfinance institutions, which we call Field Partners, who administer the loans in the field.
100% of every dollar you lend on Kiva goes directly towards funding loans; Kiva does not take a cut. Furthermore, Kiva does not charge interest to our Field Partners, who administer the loans.
Kiva is primarily funded through the support of lenders making optional donations. We also raise funds through grants, corporate sponsors, and foundations.
Allowing everyday people get involved in, and connect with people all over the world as they build each other up, creates a deeper connection world wide. Giving both parties, those lending and those receiving loans, to better their business, family, and overall life circumstances- a sense of pride, as well as feeling apart of something bigger.
