Episode Notes: Even microenterprises can get interest free loans from KIVA, a non-profit which bases its lending on character and not credit reports. Listen in as local representative, Emily Keebler explains about KIVA. Emily Keebler works to inform entrepreneurs and their supporters in the Pittsburgh area about Kiva's 0% interest, crowdfunded micro-loans as the Kiva City Pittsburgh Lead. Kiva, the world's first micro-lending website, empowers small businesses in Pittsburgh and around the world by connecting them to lenders who collectively fund loans and provide a network of support for each business. KIVA has micro loans available for businesses and the criteria is character, not credit history or lack of it.
