When you give someone a Kiva Card, you give them the opportunity to help other people achieve their dreams. Available in intervals of $25, Kiva Cards enable your recipients to make loans of their own to borrowers of their choice. And when these borrowers repay, they get the money back to support even more people again and again.
Why do Kiva loans make such great gifts? Consider the facts:
1) 2.5 billion people in the world do not have access to basic financial resources like checking accounts or credit cards. Kiva loans bring these people vital financial resources.
3) Small loans empower women to control their own financial futures and establish gender equality in their homes.
4) Families that receive loans are more likely to send their children to school, kicking off a virtuous cycle of change.
By giving a Kiva Card, you’re helping to make all this happen, and giving someone you care about the chance to do the same. The ripple effect of even the smallest loans is astounding. We can’t wait to see what the loans you give this holiday season will make possible.
