- Kiva is a platform for crowdsourced small business lending.
- Businesses will create a profile and apply for a loan.
- While the loan is being approved, you can invite local friends, family, and patrons to step up and commit to a small loan.
- Once the loan is underwritten and approved, it goes out for a public fundraising period where people using Kiva all over the world can crowdfund the loan.
