Levrage the power of our local and global community to fund your business
Each Kiva loan is crowdfunded by tens or hundreds of lenders who each contribute $25 or more. These lenders may include individuals, members of Lending Teams, institutions that have generously created matching funds, and our own DBRC Kiva Lending Fund.
Kiva loans are crowdfunded by an international community of over 1.8 million lenders. However, with anywhere from 4,000 to 6,000 loans fundraising on the Kiva website at any time, many entrepreneurs do not reach their crowdfunding goal and are left empty handed. To ensure that a growing number of Pittsburgh businesses can receive Kiva loans, Riverside Center for Innovation works to increase the number of Pittsburghers supporting our budding micro-enterprises by lending local via Kiva.
