1: Make a Loan
You make a loan on Kiva. All Kiva loans are made possible by our Field Partners, who vet, administer, and disburse each loan. More
2: Get updates
Throughout the life of the loan, you will see progress updates from Kiva through your email, and if you come back to the site.
3: Get paid back
As the borrower repays the loan, the money becomes available in your account. This is called your Kiva Credit
You can now use it to fund another loan, donate it to Kiva, or withdraw it to spend on something else.
