Kiva Baltimore

Baltimore Corps and Kiva have partnered to offer the Greater Baltimore Region with access to 0% interest loans up to $10,000 through Kiva Baltimore. Kiva's community is passionate about helping entrepreneurs in our city--with over a million lenders, corporate sponsors, and our network, we will help you find the resources you need to grow your business.

About

Rather than assessing your credit history and financial statements, Kiva uses your character and trust network as a measure of creditworthiness.

First, you will be encouraged to join our community by making a loan to another small business owner. Then, you will be asked to invite a number of lenders to launch your fundraising. Once you have the support of your friends and family, your loan will begin publicly fundraising from our network of over a million lenders - without ever sending us a credit report or bank statement.

By lending as little as $25 on Kiva, anyone can help a borrower start or grow a business, go to school, access clean energy or realize their potential. For some, it’s a matter of survival, for others it’s the fuel for a life-long ambition.
