What is Kiva City?
Kiva City extends microfinance to small businesses across America. With Kiva City, credit unions or other financial institutions partner at a local level to facilitate the loans, while community groups and civic leaders build awareness among small business owners and refer them to the program.
Each Kiva City requires three partners:
- Civic Leaders: Mayors & elected officials can demonstrate the power of community engagement by committing to bring Kiva to your city.
- Community Organizations: Work with small business networks, nonprofits, churches, and other community associations to post local businesses to Kiva.
- Financial Institutions: Partner directly with Kiva or get trained on the small business referral process.
