Kiva Team Welcome

Who can join?

Kiva Team is a moderated team with the following requirements:

Before becoming a member of the etsy team, please set up a profile on and join the kiva lending team named handmade.

Since the purpose of this group is to reach out to other small business people around the world, this team requires that members are active lenders. We recommend loaning a portion of your sales, or loaning the profits from a certain item.

The team will focus on individuals on the site who are handmade based, but members can choose any borrower to whom they want to loan.

Hi there,

Welcome to your team's own personal forum! This is your place to facilitate constructive communication within the team. It can serve as your team's main discussion hub, or a place where you post announcements every so often. You must follow the Etsy Forum guidelines when posting in the Teams Forum, and make sure that you are familiar with the Teams DO's and DON'Ts.

Even though teams are run by volunteer members of the community, all of Etsy's site policies still apply to team members and activities. However, Team Forums are moderated by the team leadership, not by Etsy Admin. Check out our Forum Moderation Guide to learn how Team Forums should be governed.

Although you can chose whether a post is public (viewable by anyone logged in to Etsy) or private (visible only to team members), please consider the Team Forums as public spaces and remember to treat one another with respect.

Now it's time to start talking with your team!
