Kiva Day One: A Week Of Holiday Giving To Women In Need

Kiva is day one of our Week of Holiday Giving To Women In NeedKiva

Give a gift to a woman in need.

For many women, Christmas is a day like any other. They are using all their resources to merely exist. Holiday cheer is a foreign language, lacking a translation.

There are so many women who do not have a hot meal or a safe space.

Some are desperate for a means to support themselves and their family. Every mother wishes for an opportunity to better their children.

Many must spend all their day just getting clean water.

And there are many young girls who are being forced to be women way before their time.

Whether you cast your net wide to underdeveloped countries or stay close to home, there are many reputable organizations that are waiting for your support to gift and lift a woman in need.

In this series, we share a list of some organizations that make a difference in women’s lives and encourage you to share your Christmas with someone in need.

Helping one person might not change the whole world, but it could change the world for one person. ~ Anonymous

Can you imagine not having any hope of accessing financial resources to start a business or keep your business going? Yet, 1.7 billion people in the world cannot access financial services.

Kiva is a non-profit organization empowering financially underserviced people to improve their lives and their communities. One of the leaders in microlending, Kiva is in 77 different countries. Since 2005 Kiva has funded 1.66 billion to 4.1 million borrowers with a 96.4 repayment rate. (as of Nov 2021) A good share (75%) of those are women who are starting businesses or working to improve their business.

Borrowers apply for the loan. It goes through an application process before it is posted for crowdsourced funding. The loans are in increments of $25.00. The loan is disbursed and then the borrower works to pay off the loan. You can then re-loan or withdraw your funds. Learn more about Kiva and its success here.

Volunteer Opportunities:
