Kiva entrepreneurs are involved in all aspects of the food cycle, from growing food on farms to selling them in retail stores. In August, we are highlighting food from around the world and the Kiva entrepreneurs who grow and sell it.

Po-tay-to, Po-tah-to

We all know how popular potatoes are in culinary traditions all around the world, but did you know about the Andean origins of this spectacular root vegetable?

From its sacred status among Incan farmers hundreds of years ago, to its journey around the world and its present day international appeal, the potato has had a remarkable effect on people all over the world, including many Kiva entrepreneurs. Learn more about potatoes and the Kiva entrepreneurs who work with them daily.

Kiva for Dinner

Now that you're hungry, take a look at what Kiva entrepreneurs are doing in the food and agriculture fields.

Food and agriculture are two of the most common areas where our entrepreneurs are making a difference. Support them to make sure they can keep feeding their families, communities, and countries.

Cooking for Kiva

Kitchens of the World, a cookbook by the Canadian Council of the Blind, is an amazing collection of food from the four corners of the globe.

Better yet, buy the book between today and Tuesday, August 17th, and the proceeds will be donated to Kiva minus a 5% processing fee. Get yours today!

Trucking Along

There’s no doubt that a shortage of food is one of the biggest challenges to global hunger, but transporting food to people who need it the most can be just as important.

Learn about these transportation challenges and how Kiva entrepreneurs rely on your loans to distribute food to their communities.

$2 Million Donation Matching

This week, Kiva announced a new grant that will match up to $2 million of online donations from individual Kiva lenders.

The Omidyar Network made this gift as part of a larger $5 million grant to Kiva, and we are thrilled. During the checkout process in the coming months, you may see a message saying that your donation is being matched. Make a loan and see it's there for you today!
