Krystal's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped expanding her business by employing and teaching women in underserved communities culinary skills and to help them find a way out of poverty by sharing her plant-based cooking.


Krystal's story

Hi Kiva family! I'm Chef Krystal. I was raised in a home with three different cooking styles, Southern, Thai and Japanese. After graduating from culinary school and working in various restaurants, I started Chef Krystal Fitness to combine my two passions of food and personal fitness. As a dance fitness instructor, vegan and a personal chef, I saw the need for more plant-based, nutrient dense food options that were delicious and diverse so people would be more encouraged to eat well and BE well, inside and out! Now I want to educate others on how to obtain the same energy and vitality I've discovered through a plant-based lifestyle and loving all God's creation.
