Kiva Reaches $200 Million in Loans!

Congratulations Kiva Lenders!

Today is a big day.  Today, March 17th at 7:40PM PST, we hit a milestone that should make us all proud.  Together, we have made $200 million in loans to deserving entrepreneurs!

Kiva Borrower: Marjorie Manitas (Phillipines)
Kiva gave its first loan in 2005, reached the $100 million mark in November of 2009, and today reached $200 million.  This means that with the help of 126 Field Partners, we have been able to provide loans to over 520,000 people in 58 countries around the world.

So, Kiva Lenders, celebrate!  Today is a big day for all of us!  Thank you for the loans you have made and all you do, every day, to make this world a better place.
