This holiday season, we're grateful for YOU.

It's been quite a year, and here at Kiva we're taking a moment to reflect on the impact we've made together. 

The impact Kiva has around the world is entirely because of you, and that’s pretty incredible. Your support has enabled us to take what was once a “hopeful corner of the internet” and turn it into a global movement for financial inclusion. 

You have proven that it’s possible to harness the goodwill of the crowd to lift up our neighbors across the globe - and they’re grateful for you, too! 

Thank you so much for your dedication to creating possibility for others.
