What should I do before I apply?

A step by step guide through what you need for your Kiva loan application and how you can set it up for success.

What is Kiva?

Learn about Kiva and our belief in the ability of community to help expand access to capital.

"Something beautiful happened"

We had no prospects of getting a traditional loan from a bank when we were starting up this farm.

"Building a socially responsible business"

We've grown quickly, with our wonderful Kiva community cheering us on the whole time.

"I started this business with a goalie equipment"

Mr. Van Leuwen took a chance on a 14-year old kid set off the journey that is now a worldwide brand.

"Kiva is an open-arms community."

I have re-found my passion to build my business back to where I left it years ago.

"I strongly encourage veterans to pursue their passions"

Now, as I step into a new pair of boots, the Farmer Veteran Coalition (FVC) and Kiva has already helped me settle in!

"Leveraging the power of community and entrepreneurship"

My experience with Kiva has been life-changing and eye-opening.

"Entrepreneurship is what runs the world"

Volunteering as an Advisor with Kiva has connected me to many aspiring entrepreneurs.

"Kiva saved my butt!"

Sometimes, Kiva helps in ways you never expect.
