Kiva has issued its Annual report online.

Kiva has issued its Annual report online.

This is the first time Kiva has  released a report like this online, and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do.

They are digging deep into what Kiva accomplished over the course of the last year; a year of milestones, meaningful firsts, and inspiring achievements as we connected more people to alleviate poverty.

In the same way that each Kiva borrower and lender has a story, each of these data points has its own story. Each number in our Annual Report is a culmination of connections, hope, generosity, volunteers, guidance from our board and long hours from our staff. 

As you read about the innovations and achievements from the past year, keep in mind that our reach is dependent on our amazing lender community and the support we get from people like you. Please consider donating to Kiva to help them continue this important work. With your help, they can continue to make a world of difference in the lives of many. 

And when you give to Kiva, you can be certain that your donation will be utilized efficiently and effectively. In fact, Charity Navigator gave Kiva their highest for the last two years-- meaning they exceed industry standards in terms of fiscal and operational management. 

Please visit Kiva's Support Us page and consider making a donation today.
