Pro-bono financial services supporting small businesses in Greater Los Angeles and beyond.

We are UCLA's first undergraduate microfinance institution. As a chapter of Kiva, we intersect business and service, executing financial services to foster opportunities while providing members with hands-on business experience. We empower individuals, families, and communities, serving those who are where they are because they are underserved, not undeserving. Join our community and help make a difference.
