KIVA Microloans

Since 2005, KIVA has been providing individuals and families around the world with microloans, money that helps people pursue their dreams in starting or maintaining businesses; provide for self and family; and arrive at self-sufficiency.

One hundred percent of donations go to funding loans, which means your money will go straight to what and where you want: from Cambodia to Yemen, Ghana to Georgia, KIVA works with microfinance institutions on five continents to provide loans to people without access to traditional banking systems.

The projects are vast, ranging from agriculture and clothing needs to educational projects and health care.
