This holiday season, let’s put our dollars where we want them- in the hands of the people building and shaping our communities.

Kiva Zip is asking YOU this week; in addition to supporting small businesses by “Shopping Small” on Saturday November 29th- we urge you to invest BIG. Invest your dollars in entrepreneurs all over the country funding loans through Kiva Zip.
What’s the benefit to investing? For starters, you get your money back. I don’t think that purse is going to have that kind of return anytime soon. Second, by lending your money to Kiva Zip businesses, you are doing more than giving them your dollars. You are stimulating their business and giving them confidence, support, and most importantly affirmation that we believe in what they do.
Just one conversation with a small business owner will tell you that they are passionate about what they do. They know the needs of our communities, fill the voids and are working every day to keep their stores running despite the odds of owning a small business.

Do you search for original jewelry not everyone and their mom is wearing? Love the taste of a local microbrew and farm-fresh vegetables? Why not invest in the people who are making it their life’s mission to bring you these quality products.
Kiva Zip allows businesses and entrepreneurs a unique experience and opportunity to take out a 0% interest loan funded by their community and their peers.  Our mission is about more than funding loans, it is about cultivating our communities by connecting lenders and businesses. There is more to business than dollars- this Saturday, let’s show these businesses how much we respect and appreciate what they are doing.

This week; Visit a Kiva borrower! Snap a pic and send us a Tweet @KivaZip with the #WhyIZip and #SmallBizSat for a chance to win a Kiva prize.
