Every week our review team looks at over 100 loan applications, and we will prioritize loans that meet these three qualifications.
Once your loan is submitted, the Review team at Kiva HQ will take a week or less to review your application. The Kiva Review Team looks at every submitted application and determines your approved loan size and the number of lenders you must invite to be approved.
1) Profile quality
We prioritize borrowers who have high-quality loan applications with clear photos, detailed loan purposes, and well thought out personal stories and business descriptions.
2) Business validation
We prioritize borrowers with websites and social media links, as it’s a requirement to validate that your business exists. If we can’t do that based on your application, you will need to send us a photo of your business license.
We speak with every borrower on the phone before we post your loan. We give priority to borrowers who are highly responsive. The final step in the approval process is a phone conversation from our Review team to explain your approved loan size and terms. So make sure the phone number you listed is working! Next, your profile will go live and you can begin private fundraising.
If you have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com. We’ll make sure a human gets in touch with you!
