Kiva Loans Help Small Business Owners Through Pandemic and Beyond

Feb 18, 2021

The Northwest Arkansas Kiva Hub at Startup Junkie in Fayetteville launched in December 2019, just months before the COVID-19 pandemic swept through Arkansas. In the last year, the hub has been able to help 30 local small business owners get a fully-funded loan through the Kiva crowdfunding platform. Several of those borrowers are using the capital to get through the pandemic.
