Most people think of Kiva.org as an international nonprofit via which you can make a loan to an entrepreneur in a developing country. What most don’t know is that Kiva now operates in the US as well, offering 0% interest loans of up to $10,000 to entrepreneurs here in New York City! 

The Kiva Zip US program is working to revolutionize the way small, socially impactful business access capital. Unlike banks who underwrite loans based on credit score, collateral or cash flow, Kiva Zip uses “social underwriting,” determining a borrower’s creditworthiness based on their character and network of trust. Loans are crowd-funded on the Kiva Zip website by individuals around the world who invest as little as $25 each. They have a network of thousands of lenders and have a funding success rate over 90%.
