What is Kiva?

Kiva is the world's first person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals to lend directly to unique entrepreneurs around the globe.  Kiva's mission is to connect people through lending for the sake of alleviating poverty. Kiva is a U.S. 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Click here to learn about the Kiva Story.  A brilliant idea by two young entrepreneurs is now changing the world.
The people you see on Kiva's site are real individuals in need of funding - not marketing material. When you browse entrepreneurs' profiles on the site, choose someone to lend to, and then make a loan, you are helping a real person make great strides towards economic independence and helping them to improve life for themselves, their family, and their community. Throughout the course of the loan (usually 6-12 months), you can receive email journal updates and track repayments. Then, when you get your loan money back, you can re-lend to someone else in need.  Read much more about Kiva at this link.

Kiva is like Ebay for the elimination of poverty around the planet.

You choose who to lend to - whether a baker in Afghanistan, a goat herder in Uganda, a farmer in Peru, a restaurateur in Cambodia, or a tailor in Iraq - and as they repay their loan, you get your money back.  It's a powerful and sustainable way to empower someone right now to lift themselves out of poverty.
