Kiva

LISC and Kiva are partnering together to expand financial opportunities for underserved entrepreneurs across the United States. Through Kiva, an online loan crowdfunding platform, start-up and established businesses can access 0% interest loans up to $10,000. LISC sponsors a one-to-one match financing up to $10,000 that helps small business owners reach their crowdfunded loan goals on Kiva’s platform. Borrowers must work with a LISC Trustee to qualify for the matching funds. Loan sizes range from $0 to $10,000 and are made at a zero percent interest rate to both start-up and existing businesses. The proceeds can be used for working capital, equipment and inventory.  For a detailed overview of LISC's Kiva program, see an informative flyer here.
