A loan of $7,000 helped us make our programming accessible to economically disadvantaged girls and women of color in Detroit. We will purchase equipment, supplies, and relaunch the Detroit Women of Color International Film Festival.
We are happy to announce that the Detroit Women of Color, Inc. is crowdfunding a 0% interest loan on Kiva. Kiva is the first and largest micro-lending service in the world that has distributed $709 million over 10 years, in 85 different countries, among 1.5 million small businesses.We are currently in a private fundraising period, during which we have 15 days to get 19 lenders in order to make it on the public platform where anyone on Kiva can lend to us. The funds from this loan will make a difference in the lives of our participants by providing training for little girls, who will be introduced to the art of cinematography, and filmmaking to teenagers and women of color to see the beauty within themselves and the city of Detroit.
We will purchase cameras, filmmaking equipment, supplies, a projector, and a portable screen. Your investment will also support our effort to relaunch the Detroit Women of Color International Film Festival.We would like to ask you to lend as little as $25 (which you will get back!) so that we can progress to the public fundraising period. If you would like to support us, please follow this link to our profile page https://www.kiva.org/lend/1300377. This is the only way your loan will be tracked as coming through us.Thank you! We could not do this without you! We sincerely appreciate your support!
