Crowdfunding for Early-Stage Enterprises
Kiva is the world’s most popular crowdfunding platform with a mission to alleviate poverty by connecting people through lending. Through crowd-funding, early-stage enterprises are able to tap a broader network of smaller, individual lenders that they otherwise would not have been able to access.
Nexus for Development is a Field Partner of Kiva meaning we are able to raise loans for social enterprises on Kiva’s platform that would have otherwise been ineligible for a listing, usually due to restricted geography. As a Field Partner, Nexus is also able to raise loans up to USD50K when direct listings are usually limited to USD10K.
