We loan because...
We're makers + product designers, too. We're passionate about pursuing our dreams and we know all-too-well how hard it can be to raise capital to fund that growth. We believe in smart design, small batch, community over competition, and making it happen. :)

About us
Wholesale Matchmaker is a service that matches creative brands (stationery, apothecary, jewelry, candles, ceramics, apparel + accessories, etc.) with retail buyers who are likely to be interested in their work. As a community, we work through a new project each month to help fortify + refine our wholesale programs, and a portion of those monthly project fees is earmarked to support other entrepreneurs through the Kiva platform. We're all in this together!
