Kiva Zip entrepreneurs in New York are a group of over 150 creative people with small businesses such as family farms, bakeries, media, and apparel. The Kiva Zip team is constantly inspired by the passion they put into their work but it's a really difficult feeling to convey to Kiva lenders, partners, and community.

Our solution to this problem was to bring our entrepreneurs directly to the community! Over one hundred enthusiastic Kiva Zip supporters gathered at our New York City co-working space to meet a dozen of our food producting entrepreneurs, including Jorge pictured above, and left with a belly full of their food and beverages.

Here are just a few more Kiva Zip food producers who sampled their products:
