We matched Kiva loans to women!

This International Women’s Day, Cartier Philanthropy was thrilled to team up with Kiva, joining the global celebration of women, and helping match all the loans made on March 8th and 9th to women borrowers via Kiva.org.

Over the past 14 years, the Kiva community has become a spark of hope and support for over 2.8 million women around the world, turning an online micro-finance platform into a global movement that is steadily expanding the financial inclusion of the underserved, whether beekeepers in Ghana, spinach farmers in Cambodia, hot dog sellers in Nicaragua or bakers in Gaza.

So, Cartier Philanthropy was thrilled to team up with Kiva for International Women’s Day 2020, joining the global celebration of women and helping match the loans to women borrowers made through Kiva.org on March 8th and 9th.

When you fund women, you empower their aspirations and decision-making, their self-confidence, their pride and their ability to build a better life for themselves, their families and their communities.

Pooling our resources with other like-minded partners and private lenders, we enabled Kiva to lend over $4M to around 40,000 women in 57 countries.
