Interest-Free Loans Available to Delaware Small Business Owners

Posted on 05-28-2022

Wilmington Alliance and Cornerstone West CDC are partnering with crowdfunding lender Kiva to make interest-free business loans of up to $15,000 available to small businesses in Delaware.
Unlike traditional bank loans, Kiva loans don’t require a minimum credit score, years of cash flow documents or collateral. But you do need to meet the following minimum criteria in order to be considered:
·     You and your business must be based in the United States.
·     You must be over 18 years old.
·     You must be using the loan for business purposes.
·     Your business must not be engaged in any of the following activities: multi-level marketing / direct sales; illegal activities (e.g. gambling, scams); or pure financial investing (e.g. stocks)
·     You cannot currently be in foreclosure, bankruptcy, or under any liens.
·     You must be willing to demonstrate your social capital by having a small number of your friends and family make a loan to you.
