Kiva is a micro-lending platform where users lend money to entrepreneurs in need. From their website, “Kiva is a loan, not a donation, allowing you to cycle your money and create a personal impact across the world.”
One of the best parts of Kiva is that the loans are 0% interest and the recipients have an incredibly high payback track record. This allows your loan to be reused multiple times once paid back, helping many different entrepreneurs over the years.
Let’s say you purchase (2) tumblers and a water bottle. Your roughly $50 purchase could help multiple different people in countries like Riwanda, El Salvador, and Kenya. Hard to beat that!
We’re very excited for this to grow over the years and hope you can be a part of spreading the word. Join our Kiva team and check in periodically to see how your purchases are helping!
