Georgina: Altitude Seven

San Francisco, CA

A Kiva loan helps us purchase additional inventory to be able to grow our sales, grow traction, and also invest in marketing efforts to further reach our community of lady adventurers. It helps us get to the next level in our business so that we might be able to qualify for more traditional financing and/or investment. It is a critical time for us and we need support. Thank you so much for your consideration!!
