    "To connect people through lending to reduce poverty"

  • Kiva is a non-profit organization that allows people to lend money via the Internet to low-income entrepreneurs in over 80 countries.

  • HOW DID IT START?

  • Geoff Davis

  • There is an historical tension between the donor/lender desire to know where my money goes and the recipient organizations need for efficiency.

  • We were blown away; every- thing worked. It was better than we expected.

  • These stories are at the heart of Kivas goal and strategy

  • the direct person-to-person connection Kiva offered was in fact an illusion.

  • The person-to-person donor-to-borrower connections created by Kiva are partly fictional, he wrote. I suspect that most Kiva users do not realize this.

  • Premal Shah, Kivas president, said he could foresee a day when Kiva really did provide person-to-person connection, once some legal hurdles are cleared and when people in the developing world began using their mobile phones to use credit and make payments.
