Elise is very excited about the opportunity to provide her clients with expanded marketing and branding solutions for all of their business needs. With over 20 years' experience and a network of clients that spans nationwide, it was time for Elise to take it to the next level in owning her own business.

The challenge she faces is start-up capital for needed operating equipment like computers and software programs, marketing materials, contractor support, training and expenses to bridge the business until sales and orders are placed and start to come in.

The Kiva loan will solve her problem by allowing her to purchase the needed operating equipment, marketing materials, and contractor support and cover expenses until the sales orders start to come in.

With company profits, her plan is to continue to grow the company, hire additional employees and expand to a larger office.
