Description

Join us for a pitch competition to help celebrate Kiva Baltimore as the newest program of Baltimore Corps. Pitch participants include Rickisha of Simply Elegance Studio and Dea of Che Yoga.

Learn more about Kiva Baltimore, connect with current borrowers and trustees, network, and support local entrepreneurs.

Hear from Yeshiyah Israel (pictured above), who successfully secured a loan through Kiva Baltimore to purchase inventory and remodel her YBI African Apparel & Fashions, LLC store, transforming the space into a hub for community events in terms of resources and teaching others to sew and learn business ethics.

Our pitch competitors will be fundraising on Kiva.org and welcome any and all contributions!

What is Kiva?

Kiva Baltimore was founded in 2005 as a nonprofit that connects people through micro-lending to alleviate poverty internationally. After creating a successful crowdfunding platform for small businesses worldwide, Kiva realized the impact they could have right here in the United States. Today, Kiva is able to offer 0%-interest loans up to $10,000 by connecting everyday investors, lending as little as $25, with entrepreneurs in our own communities. As Kiva's Operating Partner locally, Baltimore Corps helps guide business owners through the Kiva loan process and connect entrepreneurs to opportunities available within our network.
