Transforming Lives

When jobs are created people survive on their own as their self-esteem and outlook on life improve dramatically. The income generated from their new businesses allows once poor families to begin to fulfill basic needs transforming one life at a time as each person escapes the tragedies of poverty. 
 

Field Partner Testimonials

It’s hard to believe our 25th class of fellows (KF25) has been in the field for nearly 6 weeks now. They’ve already accomplished so much outstanding work with our field partners and trustees and have reported some great stories with fantastic pictures. 
 
Here are some highlights we couldn’t resist sharing with you:
 
Ignacio in Nicaragua stops by for lunch at Kiva borrower Blanca’s food stand.
 

Caroline captures an amazing sunset in Bali.
 

Nadia finds figs-a-plenty in Jordan.
 

Kiva Fellow Adam meets with Robert and learns the ins and outs of beekeeping in a big city.

Presh rushes into the classroom a few minutes after the lunch bell rings, with an ice pack in one hand and a textbook in the other.  She apologizes for running late; she had to visit the trainer to deal with a cross-country injury and then got sidetracked discussing political action committees with her social studies teacher.  But Presh is more than just a busy high school senior; Presh is also on a mission to use  microfinance to change the world.
 

Kiva is thrilled to announce the addition of John Muller, PayPal's Vice President of Global Payments Policy, to our Board of Directors.

John brings deep legal and regulatory expertise to the team and a true passion for Kiva’s mission. At PayPal, he served as General Counsel and Vice President of Legal before taking on his new role.
