Welcome Kiva Cleveland

We understand the importance of providing the tools that will allow populations who generally haven’t had the resources to get an idea off the ground or grow a business to create wealth for themselves. It starts with expanding access to capital to the many deserving entrepreneurs in our community.  

Kiva Cleveland helps financially excluded entrepreneurs fund their dreams by providing access to 0% interest capital and a community of 1.8 million supportive lenders. Check out the video to learn more and lend locally to help fund an entrepreneur near you.
