About the Show:                         

We recently sat down with Alvin Singh and Martha Londagin from Startup Junkie and Kiva NWA to discuss small business startups and the micro-lending climate in Northwest Arkansas.  There are so many options available to anyone starting or running a small business here in Northwest Arkansas. Everything from small business coaching and consulting to strategic business advice and technical knowledge. 

Unfortunately, not everyone gets access to these services.  Kiva US’ mission is to serve disadvantaged small business owners or start-ups.  Kiva NWA is doing just that right here in Northwest Arkansas. 

Hear the whole Kiva story from Martha and Alvin.
