Team number 301 -- Don and Jims Family and Friends -- is a cool lending team I think. This team was established so that supportive friends and family of Don and Jim could celebrate Don and Jims 25th year together, and now legal union, by making Kiva loans and attributing them to the lending team.

Don and Jim, retired and living in Mexico, are devout Kiva lenders. They lend because they have found the people in Mexico to be lovely, honest, and hard-working, and they want... Continue Reading >>

2007 has marked the year of many new and beautiful relationships for Kiva. One relationship in particular that is very near and dear to my heart out here in Philadelphia has been with the folks at Halloran Philanthropies. The newly formed foundation has not only supported Kiva's organizational growth, but has gone full-force in supporting a number of institutions in the microfinance space, globally.

March 15
* 1:30 PM, Empire Landmark Hotel, "Bridging The Gap" conference
* 7:30 PM, Shenanigans, Meet-Up with lenders and volunteers

This Saturday, I'm going to be talking about Kiva at the "Bridging The Gap" conference in Vancouver sponsored by the local chapter of Engineers Without Borders. This is my first public speaking appearance on behalf of Kiva, and to be honest, I'm a little nervous about it. Not so much about running out of things to say (as my friends can attest, I can go on and on and on about Kiva...), but rather, keeping the whole room full of people... Continue Reading >>

We're well overdue for a San Francisco Kiva.org Meetup, so, we thought we'd combine two great reasons to get together: welcoming Agents of Change to San Francisco and hanging out with the people that make Kiva.org happen - that includes you!!!!

Agents of Change is a Canadian organization committed to fostering social involvement among youth and seeking sustainable solutions to global poverty and inequity. 26 members of Agents of Change are riding bikes (that's bicycles, not motorbikes!) from Vancouver, BC to Tijuana, Mexico to raise money for loans to Mexican entrepreneurs through...

This summer, WEdia will send award-winning volunteer filmmakers to visit some of Kiva.org's partners in Central America to capture the stories of Kiva.org entrepreneurs on video. This... Continue Reading >>

Kiva.org recently celebrated its second celebrity fundraiser last weekend at a sweet little soiree hosted at Entourage star Adrian Grenier's house. Kevin Connolly (Entourage) and Willie Garson (Sex and the City) were also present, along with some of the Kiva.org team and a crowd of fun people.

The event was inspired by Grenier's book club that recently finished reading "The End of Poverty." Motivated to make a difference, they decided to throw a "Fund Rager" and raise money for Kiva.org.

Thanks to everyone who went along and contributed to the donation which we are very... Continue Reading >>

Following on the tremendous success of our Kiva.org Awareness Parties in Los Angeles and San Francisco, we're bringing the party to NYC.   Why? Because Kiva parties are always a good time - and it's a great way to introduce Kiva to your friends ("Hey, wanna come to a party?"). 

So come along and bring your friends - we love any opportunity to meet all the Kivans out there, and of course we want to tell your friends why they should be a Kiva lender too!

Thank you to everyone who made it out for our Los Angeles Awareness / Fundraiser party last Thursday, July 13th! 

We raised over $1000 for Kiva.org , which is great -- but what's more important is that numerous attendees who'd never heard of Kiva.org before the event identified with our mission and made loans on the site; if that's you, thank you even more! 

This was our second such event, and given the success of each one, we're looking to do more very soon in different cities across the US. If you think your city would welcome Kiva.org, let me know at sundeep@kiva.org... Continue Reading >>
