Kiva Lending: Supporting Entrepreneurs


Here and at, I’ve been supporting lending to individuals involved in coffee through Kiva. Today I received a timely newsletter that reminded me I had extra credit to lend, so I chose to lend to this lady and her friend/partner in coffee (even though I was only backfilling the loan).

It’s nice to be able to express support for such entrepreneurs even though it’s after the fact! While you can read more about Malakiah’s coffee shop, vision and entrepreneurship at Kiva, I’ll post an introduction here.

Opening a coffee shop has been a long time dream for Malakiah and her business partner April. From the tantalizing aroma of a fresh hand-poured coffee to the social buzz found at local coffee shops, the full coffee experience has always excited them. (Kiva)

If you do get the chance, you can visit them in at BrokeGirls Coffee Shop, 3562 Adams Ave, San Diego, California 92116. I only hope one day, I get the chance to visit.
