Folks, I've partnered with Kiva for the Kiva City San Francisco initiative. For every time someone uses the hashtag #LendLocal and #KivaSF, I'll contribute $5 to Kiva San Francisco, up to $25K. Kiva San Francisco is a local lending initiative to help small business owners in San Francisco get the financing they need to grow and create jobs.
Kiva San Francisco is made possible in partnership with local community groups and Kiva's Trustee partners working together to connect Kiva lenders to entrepreneurs that they know and trust in their communities.

Small business owners in San Francisco can apply for 0% interest loans up to $10,000. Apply here.
It's important that we work together to help others out when we're able. Make sure to share this on social media, and to use either the hashtag #KivaSF or #LendLocal each time you do as I'm contributing $5, up to $25K to the Kiva City San Francisco initiative for each hashtag used. Let's support San Francisco local businesses, folks.
