How did you find out about Kiva?

My son's boss gave his employees a gift certificate for a loan to Kiva and he made his first loan, one of many since then. He told me about it and I've loaned the same $25 many times now. I learned of the opportunity to edit through a Kiva newsletter.

Why did you choose to volunteer your time with Kiva?

When Obama was running for president, he encouraged the American people to volunteer, both at home and in the world community. I was inspired by that, and...

235 days ago, Jonathon Stalls looked-out on the Atlantic Ocean off the Delaware coast. It was there that he embarked on what he named KivaWalk- a cross-country trek that he would make entirely on foot - all for the sake of raising money and spreading awareness for Kiva. This Saturday, November 13th, Jonathon will end his incredible journey as he reaches the Pacific Coast off San Francisco, and he wants you to join him!

Our mission represents the collective values of the people working for and with the company. We apply our values to everything we do- from sustainability to labor practices and our belief that... Continue Reading >>

In a country where the average annual income of an individual is $1,490 (about $4/day) USD, one could only imagine the need for loans that an individual from Afghanistan would need to become a successful entrepreneur.

Ariana Financial Services, Joint Stock Company (AFS), began as a partner of Mercy Corps in May 2003 with help from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. While their early operations focused on District 7 in Kabul, they...
