Market owners Dora and Deirdre quickly embraced the spirit behind Kiva’s crowdfunded small business loans. In 2013, they were just the twelfth business in the Pittsburgh area to receive a Kiva loan. Soon after, they became a Kiva Trustee so that they could endorse other business owners in their network.
“Since paying off the loan, we’ve been able to serve as a Trustee to two Lawrenceville based businesses; the ability to ‘pay it forward’ is a major part of our core values and Kiva has enabled us to do so easily.” – Dora, Co-owner
Dora and Deirdre continue to propel the 52nd Street Market to be a success. They give back to the Pittsburgh community and hope they can inspire other entrepreneurs to do the same thing.
