Our Trustees

Kiva Zip Trustees source entrepreneurs they believe in and publicly endorse them as borrowers on the Kiva Zip website.

Trustees have no financial liability for loans, but their reputation is tied to the repayment rate of the borrowers they endorse. Unlike on the main Kiva website, trustees never actually handle the loans, which Kiva Zip disburses directly to the borrowers. Trustees can be individuals or organizations.

Become a trustee

Increase the economic vitality of your community and help fund entrepreneurs you believe in.
