Kiva's SSIW team

Page history last edited by Elin 9 years ago

This is a page to answer any and all questions about Kiva, and the SSIW team on Kiva :)

You can join the SSIW Kiva team here!

Here's a link to Kiva's help section which is very good: http://www.kiva.org/help

Kiva: the basic idea


From Kiva: "We are a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world."

1) Choose a borrower

All loans on Kiva are deserving of funding. Pick the one that speaks the most to you.

2) Make a loan

Loan amounts can be as little as $25, or as high as the full loan amount.

3) Get repaid

As the borrower repays the loan, the money becomes available in your account. This is called your Kiva Credit.

4) Repeat

You can now use it to fund another loan, donate it to Kiva, or withdraw it to spend on something else.

SSIW on Kiva


SSIW has a team on Kiva- it works just the same as above, except that you can make your loan count towards the team total. Therefore SSIW can have a presence on Kiva and we can have team goals to help encourage each other :)

You can join the SSIW Kiva team here - feel free to post on the team page.

If you have any ideas on how we can improve the team - please say! You can always send me (SparkyCola) a PM - also if something isn't clear or you have a question please don't hesitate to ask. :)

Here was the original thread on the topic if you're interested, too.
