Welcome to Kiva Zip!
A place for piloting innovations in person-to-person lending
What is Kiva Zip?
Kiva Zip is a pilot program, launched by Kiva, that enables you to make direct loans to entrepreneurs in Kenya and the United States. You can make a loan today for as little as $5. Over time, as your loan is repaid, you get your money back, and you can then withdraw it, or relend it to another entrepreneur.

I farm horticultural products and sell them. I am currently farming french beans on contract, and cabbages and tree tomatoes on freelance. I like my business because its my hobby and also caters to my basic needs. My main challenge is irrigation water to facilitate farming off season. Even though I have a well, I have to use cans to irrigate my crops. I wish I had an irrigation pump.
