World Refugee Day: Meet Nimo!

This Sunday, June 20, marks World Refugee Day.

What can you do to honor World Refugee Day with Kiva?

1. Support refugees in your community and around the world by lending.
2. Mark your calendar for Sunday, when we're matching refugee loans dollar-for-dollar!
3. Read refugee stories, like Nimo’s (below).

Nimo embodies the spirit of the Kiva community, with an unbreakable resilience on her journey from Somalia to Kenya — and a fierce determination to create a successful business.
