Kiva Trustees are typically small business technical assistance providers, community development corporations, chambers of commerce, and other groups committed to supporting entrepreneurs in our region. With their help, small business owners access 0% interest crowdfunded loans through Kiva. Over 50 individuals and agencies in the Pittsburgh area have stepped up to serve as Kiva Trustees.
“Thanks to Kiva, we were able to improve our storefront and pay for the food truck, which has been a great addition to our business. Since then, we’ve gained visibility and new customers who use our catering services and come to eat at our restaurant.”
"Thanks to Kiva, in May 2015, I was able to purchase equipment so my team could be more efficient. Having more than one vacuum cleaner enabled us to be in multiple places at a time. Since getting my first Kiva loan, we've grown tremendously! We're now a team of 10 and expanded to offer construction final cleans."
