More GREAT NEWS from Kiva!

PEP Graduate Clarence Campbell (pictured to the right when he was profiled on the Steve Harvey show) was just approved by Kiva Zip for a $5,000, zero-interest loan! He will use the loans to build three stands and purchase the supplies to get them running. Clarence says:

I expect the purchase of those three stands in the American Airlines Center to increase my revenue and profits by $10,000.00 a month. I expect my business to be impacted greatly because I’m truly building a brand now. I hope to make my business a franchise all over the world. We’ll start right here by expanding my business with three new shoe shine stands.

Clarence is now crowd-funding loans (NOT gifts) from people like you. You will be repaid monthly over 2 years.

INCENTIVE: If we can secure 30 loans in the next two weeks, Kiva itself will invest $500 towards this loan!!!

Please check it out here:

You can invest as little as $5 – and you will be repaid! Again, this is not a gift. This is an investment in the future of Clarence’s business … and he will use the loan to purchase THREE stands and all the supplies that he need to create more jobs for other PEP graduates.

THANK YOU!

Kiva Loan to Prison Entrepreneurship Program GraduateThanks to a new partnership with Kiva, PEP graduates can now receive ZERO-INTEREST loans up to $5,000. These loans are “crowd funded,” meaning that individuals like you provide the capital for the loans.

These are NOT gifts. You will be repaid monthly over a two-year period as our graduates repay the loan (and we are only endorsing those whom we feel certain will do so).

Better still, if you are new to Kiva, your loans will be MATCHED by a private foundation … meaning that if you invest $100 in a PEP graduate’s business, another lender will match your investment with another $100 (for a total investment of $200 in a business owned by a PEP graduate).

Here is one of our current loans that needs your help … please consider this amazing investment opportunity, which will deliver powerful returns in the form of changed lives:
