Zaarly Partners With Kiva


Online local marketplace Zaarly is partnering with crowdfunding platform Kiva, to provide small business owners online storefronts and access to crowdfunded business loans.

In the initial launch, seven local entrepreneurs in Oakland, CA are each being given a supporting online storefront in Zaarly’s local marketplace. In addition, these businesses will be able to get their small business loan crowdfunded on Kiva Zip, a pilot project of Kiva, where entrepreneurs can post their profile and business idea and begin getting their zero per cent interest loan crowdfunded by friends or Kiva lenders.
