Developer Home

Hello! We're Open!

Developers worldwide are helping us make it easy and transparent to lend to the working poor via microfinance and the Kiva API. This is the home for all the information and tools you need to join us!

The documentation section of the site is a manual of sorts for working with the API. We talk about conventions and best practices, and introduce you to some of the various data objects and how to work with them. We recommend that you read through most of the sections before embarking on your first application.

Check out our GraphQL API methods.
