Corporation Engagement

Kiva loans are crowdfunded by an international community of over 1.6 million lenders.  However, with anywhere from 4,000 to 7,000 loans fundraising on the Kiva website at any time, many entrepreneurs do not reach their crowdfunding goal and are left empty-handed.  To ensure that a growing number of Pittsburgh businesses can receive Kiva loans, Urban Innovation21 is asking the leadership and employees of Pittsburgh’s largest entities to support our budding micro-enterprises by lending local via Kiva.

For more information on how your company can get involved, please contact Emily Keebler, Kiva Pittsburgh Program Director, at 412-281-0102 x6 or
