Reminder: 5 days left to vote for Kiva in Project 7's Grand Giveaway!

Voting for the final round of Project 7’s Grand Giveaway ends this Sunday! Kiva has the opportunity to win $15,000 and is one of three organizations under the contest’s “Build the Future” category.

You can vote for Kiva today by clicking here, entering your email address, and then clicking on the "Build" checkbox on the ballot.

Kiva will use the $15,000 prize initially to fund approximately 50 loans of about $300 each to global entrepreneurs. All repayments made from these loans would then become donations to Kiva’s general operating expenses. For every $1 in donations that we spend building and improving our platform, Kiva can potentially generate an additional $10 in loans from the internet community – meaning the prize could have an impact of up to $150,000 in new loans.

Thank you for your vote for Kiva!
