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.

Floral Beauty Greenhouses is a major wholesale greenhouse located in upstate NY. We grow over 10,000 hanging baskets each year, 60,000 geraniums, 13,000 poinsettias, and we service over 100 retail customers within a 100 mile radius. We just broke into the retail market through our greenhouse vegetable division. With funding we will be able to improve the profitability and "green-ness" of our greenhouses and position ourselves for additional future jumps in growth and profitability over the next 2-3 years.
