We’re sure you’ve heard of Kiva? The micro finance lender that helps micro entrepreneurs all over the world.
But they have a new initiative in the works: Kiva Labs
Kiva Labs is aimed at social enterprise and eco friendly micro entrepreneurs. So if you’ve been looking to get that handmade soap company off the ground but were short of funding, then give Kiva Labs a look today to see if they can help.
The way they work is that you apply for a loan, a micro loan, and others who join can choose to fund you. This is done as a group effort, in other words – crowd funding. They invented the concept behind what you see at sites like Kick Starter, etc. You can join Kiva Labs as a lender or as someone who needs a loan and if you meet the requirements and pass approval, you just might get that awesome sexy soap company on the market. Kudos to you!
The difference between Kiva and (Kiva Labs) is the social and eco friendly factor; this new initiative is aimed at helping those who specifically have an (earth friendly venture) in the works. For full details and to apply or learn more, visit Kiva Labs.
