As a Kiva Trustee, AOLC will facilitate CRAFT farmers in accessing 0% interest microloans!
Kiva loans are small, as much as $10,000 with up to three-year repayment periods. These loans are crowd-funded on the Kiva website with a 0% interest rate and administered via PayPal. Borrowers are tasked with active online self-promotion and fundraising. Farms can use a Kiva loan for any business purpose, including but not limited to: purchasing inventory, investing in equipment, expanding production, hiring staff, marketing, and advertising.
