Our Mission In The Kiva Club

About us

The Kiva Club, a student-led organization, is dedicated to fundraising and micro-finance in order to provide loans for underprivileged people around the world who are seeking money to jump-start their enterprises. We are a chapter of KIVA, the world's first online lending platform connecting online lenders to entrepreneurs

Why do we exist?

Billions of people around the world live underprivileged lives, often suffering from poverty and oppression. The Kiva Club was founded on the principle that all people, regardless of their origin or circumstance, should be afforded the opportunity to start their own businesses and ventures.

What we do

By fundraising in our local community, we hope to be able to provide safe micro-loans to hardworking individuals around the world. Micro-financing is essential to cultivating new businesses. We want to foster growth and encourage entrepreneurship. With the support of our generous sponsors, we can turn dreams into reality.

A good deed brightens a dark world...
