When you lend in Little Rock

You can make a difference in so many ways:

  • You support small businesses, which create 2 out of every 3 new jobs in the U.S.
  • You back employers who are more likely to hire people of color, women and vulnerable groups.
  • You jumpstart the local economy, strengthening schools, communities and social services that touch even more lives.
When small businesses do well, we all do well. You have the power to shape the nation’s economy, one loan at a time.

Kiva City Little Rock loans are sourced by Accion Texas & Delta and Kiva Zip Trustees.

How Does Kiva Work?

  1. Choose a borrower.
    Your loan reaches borrowers via our Field Partners, who vet, distribute, and administer each loan.
  2. Follow your loan.
    You'll get periodic updates about the progress of your loan, including repayments as they become available.
  3. Do it all again!
    Any repayments are yours to keep, but we hope you'll make another loan... or perhaps get someone else involved with a Kiva Card.
