How does it work?

Entrepreneurs that meet the minimum requirements can apply for a 0% interest loan from $1,000-$15,000.

After an application gets reviewed by the Kiva Kansas City small business advisor, borrowers enter into a private fundraising period. They invite 20-25 family, friends, customers, and community members to be their first lenders.

After the private period the loan then goes public on the Kiva website where any lender around the world can support their business.

Once the funding goal is met, the funds are disbursed and repayment begins one month later.

Borrowers can come back and borrow again as many times as they need to as long as they payback their loans on time.

Character Over Credit Score

Kiva and Build Institute cares about you character, rather than your financial background.

You are not barred from a loan for not having strong credit scores, collateral, business plans, or financial statementsYou establish your reputation and community of support by inviting lenders from your network. Unlike other crowdfunding platforms, the Kiva community of 1.9 million lenders funds the majority of the loan amount.

About Kiva

Kiva has learned that to best provide access to capital to underserved entrepreneurs and communities, offering both an intuitive Kiva platform and higher-touch hands-on assistance from a local Kiva ambassador proves most successful.

Kiva operates best as an access-to-capital tool that is leveraged by local communities . A Kiva Hub is a market where Kiva has developed a partnership working with local stakeholders and economic leaders to make capital accessible to the most excluded clients. They employ full-time or part-time Capital Access Manager who oversees the entire applicant pool to support borrowers in accessing Kiva loans as well as navigating the capital ladder unique to that community. In order to support the work that these individuals do, Kiva provides exlusive tools, training, and access to Kiva platform to this employee.

Currently 47 communities host Kiva Hubs including Detroit, MI; Milwaukee, WI; Madison, WI; Tulsa, OK; Rochester, NY; Pittsburgh, PA; Baltimore, MD; New Orleans, LA; Chattanooga, TN; Columbus, OH; and Puerto Rico.
