Would you like to use your language skills in order to create opportunity around the world? Are you interested or already involved in editing or translation and looking to expand your vocabulary? Apply to become a Kiva Volunteer Reviewer!


Through lending, Kiva connects lenders and borrowers worldwide with the goal of alleviating poverty. Kiva’s Review and Translation Program relies on over 400 volunteers to edit, translate, and thoroughly review loan profiles that our Field Partners have posted to the Kiva website. Each profile provides a brief overview of the borrower's background and their loan use. This personal component is what helps connect Kiva borrowers with Kiva lenders.


Kiva reviewers come from diverse cultural and professional backgrounds, ranging from graduate students to retired professionals. All translations are completed online for accessibility and convenience, so you can work from anywhere -- your dorm room desk, the vacation hotel suite, or while enjoying a tea at your neighborhood cafe!


If you are a native or near-native English speaker with a high level of proficiency in Spanish, French, Russian, or Portuguese, find out more and join our group of talented reviewers.


Please note: You may notice that some of our applications on our website are currently in waitlist status. At the moment, we are recruiting volunteers, but we are not currently onboarding for all language pairs. Please feel free to add your name to the waitlist and you will be contacted once the onboarding process begins again. Thanks so much for your patience!
