Kiva partners with Sofia Vergara, Hitachi to raise $50M in Global COVID-19 Response



Today, we’ve announced a global response to support small businesses, entrepreneurs, farmers, and families globally who urgently need financial assistance due to COVID-19. This fund is supported by actress Sofia Vergara along with partners like Hitachi and the Hiscox Foundation, and will focus on providing direct funds to vulnerable populations like minorities, women, and those in isolated areas.

Introducing the Global COVID-19 Response fund.


By contributing to the COVID-19 Response fund now, you'll support people impacted by COVID-19 as their loans become available on over the coming weeks and months. You can contribute one time or make an even bigger impact by choosing to contribute monthly, as this crisis will affect those in need well beyond the next few weeks. The time is now to help our global community with financial relief and to give everyone the chance to rebuild.

Together, we’re inviting our global community to join us to help reach our goal of $50 million in funds raised to help 1 million small businesses, organizations, and individuals. Join the Kiva community today in making a difference with the COVID-19 Response fund.

Borrowers everywhere will need help rebuilding their lives post-pandemic, and we can be the helping hand that lifts them up. Spread the word and join in on this monumental campaign to make an impact in a struggling world.

Join us! With as little as $25, you can make a difference in someone’s life.
