We are all about helping dreams come true here at B.A.F.F.L.E.D., and of course fashion dreams have a special place. So many designers and fashion enthusiasts spend a lot of time creating and producing, but must devote effort working to get the word out on their brands, too.
We're here to help in getting the word out. Kiva Zip-- similar to Indiegogo and Go Fund Me--is taking flight in Chicago and across the country. They are providing small business loans for entrepreneurs, letting them put the most focus on creating while not feeling pressed about promotion, overhead, etc.
Kiva Zip is a non-profit 501c3 organization and an online platform that crowdfunds 0% interest, no fee microloans up to $5,000 for entrepreneurs and small businesses who might otherwise be denied loans by traditional financial institutions. Instead of basing loans on credit scores or collateral, loans are based on character and the strength of the entrepreneur's network, something called "social capital". Kiva Zip has helped over 25 local Chicago entrepreneurs receive loans to take their business to the next level. They have 56K+ lenders on their platform and over 1,500 small business funded nationwide.
