Intuit’s mission is to power prosperity around the world. That’s why we’ve partnered with Kiva, a non-profit micro lending organization. Kiva’s mission is to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Kiva microloans have helped 2.7 million entrepreneurs around the world, many from underserved communities. Kiva seeks to make opportunity a reality for everyone, by enabling access to capital and a supportive community.
For millions of people around the world, entrepreneurship can be the only way out of poverty. This is especially true in underserved communities, but few take the leap, due to high risk and lack of financial support.
That’s where our partnership with Kiva comes in. For each purchase of our TurboTax Self-Employed + QuickBooks Self-Employed bundle, Intuit gives a $25 loan to a Kiva entrepreneur. Kiva’s focus on making opportunity a reality for everyone aligns with Intuit’s corporate social responsibility vision of powering prosperity for those who need it most.
Meet Rebecca and the Marcellus Brothers as they share their journey to prosperity with the help of Kiva and Intuit.
Prosperity for Swapples
Rebecca launched her business, Swapples, where she and her team make a healthier version of waffles that you can eat on the go. Rebecca went to Kiva after being turned away from traditional banks because she was too young. A Kiva loan is helping Rebecca purchase new raw ingredients, new packaging, and new equipment.
Prosperity for Dorpare Tea
The Marcellus brothers launched their business, Dorpare Tea, inspired by their Haitian upbringing as children drinking ginger root tea. A Kiva loan is helping the Marcellus brothers purchase commercial kitchen equipment and expand their business operations.
