"Kiva was fundamental to getting our business off the ground."

Kiva has given us the ability to 'pay it forward' and help other local businesses flourish as well.

"Wonderfully supportive network of folks"

My Kiva loan helped me stay afloat in the day to day operations of a food business and its inherent demands on cash flow.

"Just try"

I was really amazed with how easy Kiva made it to get your information on there and to get started. 

"A smoother path towards success"

Los Paleteros were limited to producing only 160 ice pops per day but since the loan have been able to produce up to 160 ice pops per hour!

"I believe in magic"

As a first time borrower I’d like to share some insight with readers based on my experience.

"Vital, vibrant, and necessary"

The fastest loan ever to be funded in Los Angeles.

"A tremendous boost"

I started this company as a way of pursuing my belief that I can do good for the world and also make a profit.

"Soup for the soul"

Quite simply we heart pozole. Our love affair began with our time spent in Mexico and our family’s ties in Arizona.

"Ignoring the naysayers"

At Sprouted Minds we manufacture superfood and fruit bars with a goal of promoting environmental sustainability, closed looped-production, and living-wages for all employees.

"Getting us off the ground"

I’m one of the co-owners of Drums & Crumbs, a food truck based in the San Francisco Bay Area. We specialize in Southern Cuisine, specifically fried chicken, and we’ve been in business for a couple of years now.
