19 19 Current Landscape: Microfinance supply not meeting demand 1. CGAP, Microcredit Summit Campaign and UN Population Division data 2. Microcredit Summit Campaign data, CGAP and Microfinance Information Exchange survey of 191 MFIs ranked “Lack of funding” as the biggest constraint to growth, with biggest barrier to funding being “not enough contact with social investors / donors”. Borrowers (millions) Est. # of borrowers in need Est. # of borrowers reached  3,300 Microfinance Institutions (“MFIs”) reach 100M borrowers  This meets only 20% of the estimated demand  Most MFIs are small (90% have < 10k borrowers)  Reaching more borrowers requires access to capital -- a major growth constraint 500M 100M Microfinance Demand vs. SupplyMFIs by # of Borrowers Reached # of MFIs worldwide = 3,

20 20 Threshold scale needed to access commercial institutional capital # of MFI clients Time Catalytic Low Cost Risk Capital Conservative Institutional Capital With Kiva Without Kiva Kiva’s solution: Reduce MFI capital constraint enabling them to reach more borrowers Individuals can provide risk capital where commercial institutions won’t Emotional return reduces need for risk adjusted financial return No overhead cost structure to support (vs. bank) further reduces need for return Until MFIs achieve a certain scale, capital is a major constraint to growth
