  6. 6. Kiva  is  a  completely  digital  company   where  all  fundraising  is  processed   online.  
  7. 7. Kiva  inspires   people  who   would  like  to   help  globally   from  the   comfort  of  their   local  homes.

  10. 10. Currently,  there   are  3,198  loans   available.  
  11. 11. Whether  its  funding  money  to  buy  a  goat  to  use  to  sell  milk   products  or  seeds  for  vegetaOon,  every  dollar  is  lent  to  a   specific  person  in  need  to  help  them  with  their  cause.    
  12. 12. There  is  an  opOonal  fee  of  $3.75  to  support  the  organizaOon,   because  100%  of  all  loans  are  given  to  the  borrowers.  
  13. 13. This  kind  of  donaOon-­‐based  approach  is  fundamental   to  the  company’s  success  and  borrowers  achieving   op-mal  fundraising.     4 seconds between loans $4,721,950 lent 7,556 new lenders joined 65,082 lenders made a loan 11,069 borrowers funded

  16. 16. Powerful  example  of  technology  enabling  seemingly   impossible  dreams  to  come  true  through  lenders   who  never  imagined  they  could  help.
