The Kiva API is concerned with helping you find and present data from Kiva. We want to help you find things like loans, lenders, and partners and help you represent those in your applications and products. We think there are a lot of really useful things that can be done just by helping the Kiva community find information in different ways or experience it in a new context.
In talking about data, we'll start by defining some common terms used by the API and how that relates to the language on the Kiva website. Then, we'll explain some of the data types in more detail and write about some practical approaches on putting the different types of data calls together.
