Here’s a brief listing of online stores that sell Kiva-related merchandise and pool the profits back to loans. This is not an exhaustive list, and we’d love to find others. So if you see something, say something!
Kiva New York Store: Our team’s Amazon store
Kivastore.org: A volunteer-run store that gives all profits back to Kiva. Check out their geo-caching coins and wristbands…awesome!

Kiva has a solid API to help developers build applications. They expose a wide variety of data through the API including loans, teams, updates, lenders etc. As of this writing, they don’t expose team messages, and the data snapshot (of the entire database) is no longer updated.
