    I am a startup in the USA, I was told no here is the actual kiva reply:
    Hi there,

    Unfortunately, due to the continuing high demand for Kiva loans from small business owners throughout America, your Kiva loan application has been removed from consideration at this time.

    To strengthen your future business loan applications — whether with Kiva or other small business lenders –, and grow your business, we would recommend contacting one of the following, nationwide service providers. They are experts in providing technical assistance to businesses like yours:

    Your local SCORE chapter for free business mentorship (in person)

    MicroMentor for free business mentorship (online)

    Your local SBDC for free business consulting and training sessions

    I am sorry that we weren’t able to support you with a Kiva loan at this time. We wish you all the best with your business venture, and hope to reconnect in the future.

    SO no they are not suitable for startups unless you are in a third world country, no they will not accept you from the US so dont try, you have to be poor people from another country to get help here despite what thier own page states. I am getting my company going another way with out the startup funds it needs by generation a small income from outbound calls, I am a virtual call center so the actual number of employees I can hire will be very limited untill I can generate enough income with this method.

    THANKS KIVA for NOTHING so youre approved borowers will have the same status with me that you gave me NOTHING

    Hey DM Johnson – What type of business do you have? Could the “type” of business that you were trying to start be the reason for you being declined?

    I have a dream to empower women in my country from their childhood through sports and education, and providing academic inclusion to everyone through providing affordable quality education with a holistic approach, this seems to be a great platform for this dream to come to reality.
