A Global Celebration in 10 Cities in Honor of Kiva's 6th Birthday!

10 parties | 10 cities = 1 cause

We are excited to tell you about global celebrations being hosted by Kiva Lenders around the world in honor of Kiva's 6th Birthday!

On behalf of the Kiva Lender hosts, please join the Kiva Community this October in one of the 10 participating cities and help us celebrate 6 years of making loans to deserving entrepreneurs around the world! Come meet Kiva enthusiasts in your community and celebrate the global movement that is connecting microfinance lenders and borrowers across the globe.

Each city celebration will provide lending stations and the opportunity to make Kiva loans on-site, as well as information about Kiva for new lenders. So, it's a wonderful opportunity to invite friends and family who have never heard about Kiva.

The celebrations will be hosted by Kiva Lenders in the following cities across the globe: Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Chicago, Pittsburgh, New York, Toronto, Montreal, London, Paris, and Melbourne!

Unable to attend one of these city events? You can still celebrate virtually by making a loan attributed to one of the hosting lending teams (Be sure to join the team before making your loan!)
