Women who are changing the world

Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 and based in San Francisco, with a mission to expand financial access to underserved communities. Because women entrepreneurs often face more difficulty accessing financing than their male peers, Kiva loans help them to access the resources they need.
