One Small Loan Makes a BIG Difference...
Welcome to 6th grade CEL class...
...on Social Entrepreneurship!
We learn & practice... research, finance,
presentation, collaboration and digital skills for our
Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership (CEL) class...
...in a global context of social entrepreneurship and
We research regions of the world...
...with an eye towards identifying countries where
people struggle the most with poverty.
We model microfinancing...
...to the school community as a way to raise funds, and encourage any local groups, student clubs and
alums to make small loans to support our small
business activities/plans. Proceeds from the small
business ventures pay back these small loans and
all profits are directed to Kiva borrowers.
We are a lending team in Kiva.org...
...and work to explore and evaluate different types
of microloans, identify potential borrowers and
determine where to allocate our funds.
We'll track our loan investments
...and see how we make a real-world difference in
the lives of people challenged by poverty.
