Yes. Your Monthly Good subscription can be canceled or edited at any time. To do so, go to your subscription settings.

If you decide to cancel your Monthly Good, you have a few options:

  • You can use the money in your account to continue lending to borrowers you select manually.

  • You can sign up for auto lending, which allows you to continue automatically lending your money without adding new deposits automatically.

  • You can withdraw any money that has been repaid, or donate your money to Kiva as it’s repaid by the borrowers you supported.

As borrowers repay their loans, your money will automatically be relent to other entrepreneurs, multiplying your impact.

At this time we only offer contributions on a monthly basis. If you’re interested in being alerted when we launch other options, please email contactus@kiva.org and let us know.

If you want to sign up for a recurring contribution to Kiva, but still want to choose who you support, consider signing up for auto deposit. With an auto deposit, you can make a monthly contribution into your Kiva account in any amount you wish. Once the credit is deposited into your account, you can sign in to lend it to the borrowers you choose. To learn more: kiva.org/auto-deposit
