How Does Pitchfest Work?

Each farmer will make a 5-10 minute pitch of their business and their loan opportunity. Each will have a dedicated computer at the event so that individuals can make loans immediately. Links to their loans will also be available if lenders want to make a later investment or share with friends. Lenders can invest as little as $25 up to $10,000 and will be repaid via the Kiva website and able to withdraw repaid funds or lend again. 

Lending requires a Kiva account. Payment on the Kiva site occurs through PayPal and lenders can use an existing PayPal account or use a "guest" account at the event. A computer will be available on-site for lenders to create these accounts, but lenders are encouraged to set up accounts in advance.
