Kiva is an organization that serves as medium between third world entrepreneurs, microfinancing institutions and individuals to provide microloans to help people improve their lives.

Microfinancing institutions submit loan descriptions to Kiva in the target language, which then is translated to English.

How can you help? Donate to help an entrepreneur! Or, Volunteer as a translator, translating business descriptions from a world language to English. This is a great opportunity for language teachers and students, honor societies, service hours, etc.

Tell Kiva translator Cindy Kendall referred you as a translator. I invite and challenge you to use your gifts and talents to change a life.
