What better way to try Kiva than to try it for free? Free trial loans are available while supplies last to the first users who join Kiva through this promotion and make a free trial loan.
These free trials will be financed by friends of Kiva, allowing the new lender to make one $25 loan free of charge. These free trial loans are disbursed to borrowers in the same way other loans are disbursed on Kiva. However, since the sponsor is funding the free trial loan, any repayment funds from the free trial loan will go back to the sponsor, not to the free trial lender. New lenders invited during the promotion may choose to use their own funds to make a loan, in which case repayments will go back to the lender.
Supplies of free trials are limited to one (1) per new user, and will be made available on a "first claimed" basis.
As of the morning of March 8th, there was 36,700 free loans still available out of an initial 38,000. The word is spreading, and the loans are going quickly. Hurry up and join ASAP.
