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.

2nd loan

We started Fiesta Farm in 2010 to raise chickens on a 1 acre rented pasture. We now farm nearly 35 acres, raising several different kinds of livestock and exploring vegetables and fruit production with a vision for a fully diversified, biodynamic farm. This year we need to replace half of our laying flock, purchase a livestock trailer, and improve water infrastructure/delivery to our pasture.
