Gardner Capital and Kiva Partner to Accelerate Minority-Led Small Business Access to Finance in Texas

Gardner Capital, a private equity firm and alternative investment platform specializing in multifamily housing and renewable energy development and investment, is partnering with Kiva through Gardner Capital’s GCRE Upward Mobility Fund to accelerate minority-led small business access to finance in Texas.

The partnership will initially focus on supporting BIPOC small business owners in the Dallas and Houston markets, and provide a revolving fund to match loans raised on Kiva’s crowd-funding platform – both increasing the total funding available and accelerating the speed of funding loans for entrepreneurs.
