Love making a difference with Kiva? Your donations keep us running.

Thank you for the impact you’ve made this year! Together we’ve funded more than 170,000 loans and raised more than $120 million for financially excluded people around the world. It costs us more than $3 to facilitate each $25 loan, and we rely on optional donations from individuals like you to cover our costs.

Hello! We're Open!

Developers worldwide are helping us make it easy and transparent to lend to the working poor via microfinance and the Kiva API. This is the home for all the information and tools you need to join us!

The documentation section of the site is a manual of sorts for working with the API. We talk about conventions and best practices, and introduce you to some of the various data objects and how to work with them. We recommend that you read through most of the sections before embarking on your first application.

Check out our GraphQL API methods.
