Trustee: Centro Business Planning App
- Why are you interested in becoming a Trustee?
- We created a new app, called the Centro Business Planning Tool, that entrepreneurs can use to create a business plan. One of the main reasons people create a business plan is to access capital, and offering our customers the ability to access Kiva Zip's interest-free loans is a great opportunity for them.
- What is the mission of your organization?
- The app is designed to guide entrepreneurs through the business planning process to help them start and grow their businesses and to develop sustainable business models.
Borrower Due Diligence
- How will you decide who to endorse as a borrower? What due diligence will you conduct?
- In order to qualify for our endorsement for their Kiva Zip loan, individuals must create their business plans using the Centro Business Planning Tool. By completing all of the activities in this app, potential borrowers will have thought through the different pieces of their business models and should be able to effectively explain their business to Kiva Zip lenders. The app is publicly available: - for Apple (iOS) devices: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/centro-business-planning-tool/id844160703? - for Android devices: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=centrocommunity.org
