Kiva raises money and lends it to entrepreneurs in economically developing countries who are looking to start a business. The entrepreneurs then pay back the loan to our club so we can use that money to loan to other entrepreneurs. Kiva teaches compassion, economic skills, dedication and cultural awareness. Kiva is a national organization.
Participation is required in our fundraising events as well as deciding which eligible candidates get loans.
Contact a current Executive Board member or a sponsor for more information and to learn about meeting times/location, or visit Student Activities with questions.
