Commitment to Action

Kiva City San Francisco

Commitment by

Kiva.Org

In 2015, Kiva.org committed to expand its Kiva City program to San Francisco where it will extend 1,000 loans to financially excluded and socially impactful small business owners. Kiva’s loans are crowdfunded on the Kiva website (www.Kiva.org), connecting small business owners with financial capital (at 0% interest), but also with social capital – brand ambassadors, business advisors, and even customers. The Kiva City model was first unveiled at the Clinton Global Initiative in 2011, with Kiva City Detroit. This expansion, in partnership with Capital One and the City and County of San Francisco, will be the twelfth and largest Kiva City to date.
