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

Check out our latest post on Medium and see how Kiva borrower Jackline is creating an environment that encourages all her students to stay in school. 


Biba, her class, and all of us at Kiva were blown away by the response to Biba's story of perseverance and spirit during a difficult battle with brain cancer. Nearly 3,700 lenders made a loan in Biba’s honor, raising $153,000 in loans for people around the world. Simply incredible.

Below is a thank you letter to lenders from Biba, who also shares the story of her inspirational students:

Several years ago, a few of my high schools students and I were sitting around after school discussing our desire to start a club that would utilize concepts we were learning in Economics including globalization, sustainable development, gender equality and community service. As we were brainstorming ideas, I remembered this wonderful organization named Kiva, based out of San Francisco that utilized crowdfunding as a means of sourcing microfinance loans all over the world. We had already studied microfinance and as we spoke further about the possibilities of opening our own Kiva Club the excitement became quite palatable.
