UPDATE: WE REACHED OUR GOAL DECEMBER 17TH! Thank you so much to everyone who supported us and shared!
Belladonna’s Cupboard has been accepted for a 0% interest loan through Kiva. Kiva is the first and largest micro-lending service in the world that has distributed $709 million over 10 years, in 85 different countries, among 1.5 million small businesses. They specialize in helping female entrepreneurs and disenfranchised or marginalized populations with economic development through business ownership.
I am currently in a private fundraising period, during which I have 15 days to get 25 lenders in order to make it on the public platform where anyone on Kiva can lend to me. The funds from this loan will go towards helping us catch up and ensure both fulfillment and growth in the coming months. If we succeed in raising the funds for this loan, we will also be eligible for larger amounts from the Kiva network in the coming months. This is an incredible opportunity for us to gain access to funding that can fuel real growth since we don’t have access to traditional financing methods.
I would like to ask you to lend as little as $25 (which you will get back!) so that I can progress to the public fundraising period. If you would like to support me, please follow this link to my profile page https://www.kiva.org/lend/1410874. They even made me take & post this awful non-selfie photo for this. Lol. Thank you for always supporting and believing in us. I know it can be hard sometimes, our chaotic lives sometimes get in the way of being able to do all that we intend to for the ones we love and support. You are so amazing and I completely understand either way.
Thank you so much for your support!
