- What We Do
Kiva is an online loan crowdfunding platform that enables entrepreneurs to access 0% interest small business loans up to $10,000. Kiva’s model is unique because it uses social underwriting--a borrower’s character, relationships, and reputation--instead of their credit scores or assets to access business capital.
LISC LA has capitalized a matching loan fund from Pacific Premier Bank to support Kiva borrowers endorsed by a LISC Kiva Trustee in LA County. LISC LA currently has over 15 Trustees for local businesses to partner with. Check out the list below.
LISC also has a partnership with the City of Long Beach, and has launched Long Beach as an official Kiva City. If you are a business owner in Long Beach, connect with Trustees on the Long Beach Kiva City page here.
