As a global nonprofit, Kiva combines the culture and technological passion of an internet startup with the compassion and empathy of a non-profit to create impact and opportunity at a global scale.

Guided by our core values, our team is growing as we pursue exciting new opportunities to create a financially inclusive world. Our values are integral to the fabric of our culture: (1) impact first (2) extreme ownership (3) be curious and bold (4) inclusion, equity, diversity (5) honor and integrity, and (6) love and kindness always. We are a group of people who are passionate about helping women, refugees, and historically underserved small businesses and communities around the world achieve their dreams.

Headquartered in San Francisco, Kiva's team has 100+ employees and 450+ volunteers worldwide.


More than 1.7 billion people around the world are unbanked and can’t access the financial services they need. Kiva is an international nonprofit on a mission to expand financial access for all. We run kiva.org, a global marketplace platform to crowdfund micro-loans for financially excluded individuals, small business owners, farmers and students around the world.
