  • We hand-select entrepreneurs to invest in their business ideas.
  • All entrepreneurs are vetted + the loan dissemination and repayment is facilitated by our nonprofit partner, Kiva.org.
  • Entrepreneurs build their business and then repay their loan.
  • 96% of loans given through Kiva are repaid.
  • This high repayment rate indicates an extremely high rate of successfully growing businesses!
  • When a loan is repaid, we do not take the money back, but re-invest that SAME loan with a new, different entrepreneur.
  • This means that over time, one loan could cycle through innumerable entrepreneurs, growing many, many businesses.

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BUSINESS?

"My husband and I are avid campers. While he was serving as a marine, we would take camping trips as a way to decompress and relax. During that time, we stayed at many RV parks and campgrounds across the US. These experiences led us to want to open our RV park and campground to share our love of the outdoors with others." - Sited from Kiva.org

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF YOUR LOAN?

"This loan is to fund a septic system and installation. An RV park's success must have septic hookups for the campers. This septic system will be able to service 12 RV spots plus the bathhouse. This is the first step in the development of the park. Once the septic is installed, the road and RV spots can be graded, and water and electricity installed. This is a crucial step towards our grand opening!." - Sited from Kiva.org
