Well, it is still Women’s History Month, at least for a few more days…and Kiva has been highlighting its women-owned businesses all month – and that includes US! Kiva has been critical to the work we’ve done here
FYI — At this critical time for businesses, the Kiva lending platform is still active and dedicated to helping small businesses succeed. If you are considering any type of loans to help keep your business afloat during this COVID-19 crisis, a Kiva loan may be your best option!
Kiva loans are absolutely interest free! And, as a response to COVID-19 they have actually altered the US loan product to expand borrower eligibility, increased loan size to $15,000, and offer a 6 month grace period for repayment terms. Please see the graphic attached below and this blog update for a further breakdown.
Kiva has offered a helpful COVID-19 FAQ page for both lenders and borrowers HERE.
For more information about how you can apply, visit kiva.org or just ASK US! Kiva has been a tremendous resource for our establishment and we are happy to help you get started!
Wishing health and strength to all!
