Dedicate a loan to Dad this Father's Day!
Dedicate a loan to the dads in your life today!

Just go to kiva.org/lend, and look for the heart before you check out. Click to dedicate your loan to Dad — and even include a special message about why you chose that loan just for him.

When you dedicate a loan on Kiva you do three good deeds at once:
  • Give a dad in your life an unforgettable gift.
  • Give someone else in the world the tools they need to succeed.
  • Your repayments get donated to Kiva to help us reach even more borrowers.


Hi Camille, Thanks for the article. I tried to find the heart that you mentioned to make a donation, but I simply just cant find it. Would you advice again how I can make this Father's day Loan to Eladio, please? Thanks.

Dave this loan is dedicated to you for Father's Day 2013. It is a very worthy cause in helping these people to get ahead with their entrepreneurship. Happy Fathers' Day Dave !!

Happy Father's Day Dad! A loan to Domingo in Nicaragua was made in your honor. Like you, Domingo is a hard-working man and a good husband and father. Also like you, he sells medicine. This loan will help him build a bathroom for the family home.

Thanks for your good and impressive work.

Happy father's day to all dads! This is the reason that I made a leap of faith and start borrowing on Kiva. Nice vid, good speech Eladio :).
