Relentless determination is amazing to me. And the entrepreneurs I lend to or work with personally at Kiva have it.
We struggled with what we felt was an inherent ‘no’ built into investment laws written in another era.
Kiva Zip has been an amazing resource to help provide capital people sorely need.
I truly believed in Hannah and wanted to help in any way that I could.
As a lender and Kiva staff member, I get to connect with entrepreneurs in my backyard and all around the U.S.
It’s re-imagining a financial system that’s based on human connections, not on financial transactions; on people, not on profit.
I really wanted to work for Kiva!
The first time I called a borrower just after he fully funded, I could hear how Pablo was unable to contain the pride and happiness.
Natasha, who opened Nectar Cafe because of her passion for delicious vegan food, worked her tail off to get where she is right now.
Kiva is a really cool place.
