Kiva Launches in India
Kiva just got more global. Lenders can now make loans as small as $25 to help borrowers in some of the poorest regions of India build sustainable futures. This is the heart of Kiva's mission —bringing opportunity where it's needed most.
What to know about Kiva in India
With 68% of India's population living below the international poverty line, access to affordable financial services is more critical than ever. Kiva's approach is defined by:
Our Field Partnerships with 3 socially-driven nonprofits — People's Forum,Mahashakti Foundation, and WSDS-Initiate.
A commitment to serving marginalized communities, including the very poor, widows, and the disabled, who have had little to no access to credit.
Kiva's overarching goal to connect millions of people around the world through lending to alleviate poverty.
Even if all of the loans on kiva.org/india are currently funded, there will be more chances to support borrowers in this part of the world. Stay tuned, and consider making a loan to another borrower in need.
