We help diverse and vibrant small businesses all across Iowa access affordable capital and small business resources.
Kiva is a global nonprofit microlending platform.
There is a lack of affordable microloans available to small business owners and budding entrepreneurs. It’s difficult to get capital unless you make it to a certain size, with a certain revenue under your belt. And if you’re a woman, a person of color, someone with a low or no credit score, it’s even more difficult.
To address this challenge here in the state of Iowa, NewBoCo is partnering with a global nonprofit organization called Kiva to create a statewide Hub for Iowa that gives these entrepreneurs access to a microlending platform to raise zero interest, zero fee, extended grace period loans from active lenders motivated by social impact. These loans range from $1-$15k and lenders can give as little as $25 at a time.
