Kiva

Kiva is a local non-profit that connects small businesses with 0% interest loans up to 10k. Loans are crowd-funded on the Kiva website by individuals around the world who invest as little as $25.

Rather than looking at credit scores, cash flow, or collateral, Kiva underwrites loans based on the character of the entrepreneur. Their funding success rate is over 90% and the process only takes a few weeks.

Kiva loans can be used for any business purpose. Most use Kiva financing to purchase equipment, support marketing efforts, invest in inventory, or as a working capital buffer.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Spencer (spencerl@kiva.org) who is managing the Bay Area program.
