Small Businesses

NEW and GROWING small businesses create local jobs and are critical to the economic vibrancy of every community. Prairie Rose Development was created to better democratize access to capital for under-served and under-represented small business owners through impact and character-based lending.

Community Support

"I was referred to Prairie Rose Development's Kiva program by the SBDC Denver to explore funding options to expand my business. My experience with Kiva was amazing from the moment I made contact. I worked closely with Madison who informed me of the process and even followed up on multiple occasions with words of encouragement. Once my application was approved my loan was funded in full. I have since launched a new website, completed business plan, redesigned my logo with funds received from my Kiva loan. I highly recommend this funding option."
