Rudi’s Organic Bakery is paying homage to its entrepreneurial roots through a microloan program with Kiva, a nonprofit organization with a mission to connect people across the globe through lending to alleviate poverty.
Rudi’s Organic has set a goal to loan $25,000 to 25 entrepreneurs in 25 days. The amazing stories behind these entrepreneurs inspired us to create a Facebook application entitled, “Seed. Sprout. Grow.” Through this application, fans can select an entrepreneurial story that inspires them and ‘share’ it on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest. It’s pretty simple - for every story shared, Rudi’s will loan $1 until we’ve reached the $25,000 goal.
We would LOVE your help in reaching this goal! Simply visit the ‘Seed. Sprout. Grow.’ application and select an entrepreneur whose story touches you and share. For each share that your post receives, Rudi’s will also loan $1!
Fans who want to loan more can join Team Rudi’s Organic on the Kiva website and loan additional funds in the dollar amount of their choice.
