Kiva Lending | We think of Kiva as the first rung on the capital ladder. Social lending through Kiva is a great option if you have a very small business. You pay 0% interest and 0% fees. Loans are considered micro-loans and range from $1,000 to $15,000. Kiva is a great way to grow your business while creating opportunities for other owners. Meet with our Kiva Capital Access Manager to learn more. If you’d like to read some KIVA success stories, click here.
Childcare Funding | A healthy network of childcare providers is vital because parents cannot work without quality, dependable, and affordable childcare. Since childcare providers often do not qualify for traditional bank financing, WBDC Direct Loans are available for aspiring and established childcare entrepreneurs to assist with the costs of supplies, inventory, and working capital.
