Our involvement with Kiva and microlending continues - even after our Social Entrepreneurship courses have ended for the year! Students from both classes have voluntarily met over lunch time several times to learn about their Kiva lona repayments and to choose NEW Kiva borrowers to re-invest in.
Our 5th grade students LOVE the idea that once the Kiva borrowers that they originally invested in -- 16 borrowers, in all -- repay their loans, that money goes back into our SCH Team Kiva account and they get to choose even more borrowers to lend to! They are now up to investing loans to 22 borrowers in just a few months time!
Our 5th grade Social Entrepreneurship students are enjoying this opportunity to make a continuing impact on the lives of Kiva borrowers around the world by investing in their businesses and helping their families.
