Our Partners

Our success is a result of the Southern Arizona community coming together to support our borrowers. We consider individuals and organizations who support the Tucson Kiva Hub our partners who are identified as either a lender or a Trustee.


Kiva’s unique community-backed model helps business owners access loans with the help of their communities. As a lender, you have the power to create opportunity and help others work toward their dreams. Our lenders have played an important role in supporting our Kiva borrowers. As a lender you are repaid the exact amount you loaned during the loan period (1-3 years). The minimum amount to get started as a Kiva Lender is $25.


Trustees are organizations that provide expertise and endorsement to help create a successful borrower experience. Trustees add credibility to a borrower by vouching for their character, business, and social impact. Before endorsing a borrower, a Trustee should feel confident that the borrower has done the work to be successful and that they are committed to repaying the loan.
