CFRC/RISE partners up with KIVA


We are excited to announce that this month we have officially signed on as a Trustee for Kiva Zip, an online website that enables financially excluded and socially impactful entrepreneurs to access 0% interest loans through crowdfunding. 

The program (also known as the Capital Partners Access Loan Program) targets new and existing Capital Partners participants who have at least completed Level I training and are current on any outstanding loans. Qualified borrowers will have access to an interest-free $5,000 micro-loan. Provided that loans remain in good standing, borrowers would be eligible for over $50,000 in interest-free loans.
