SPSA and Kiva

Since 2016 8 th grade classes have sponsored Kiva Microfinance loans to people in the 3 rd world with great needs and tiny incomes. This began with a bake sale by students and continued with matching funds and repayments each year since. Loan recipients can not get normal bank finance and get no government support. People helped usually make less than $200.00 per year. People use the loans to start or improve small businesses take care of health needs, educate children, get clean water, flush toilets, farm animals, a roof or other basic housing. We have never had a default yet. In the past 4 years, we have made 15 loans to people in 12 countries. Students have helped refugees, single parents, elderly, minorities, and folks who really have nothing but just want help and not a handout. Students have selected who got the loans after studying possible candidates on the Kiva Website.

Way to go 8th graders!

Desde 2016, las clases de octavo grado han patrocinado préstamos Kiva Microfinanzas para personas en el tercer mundo con grandes necesidades y pequeños ingresos. Esto comenzó con una venta de pasteles por parte de los estudiantes y continuó con fondos y reembolsos equivalentes cada año desde entonces. Los receptores de préstamos no pueden obtener financiamiento bancario normal y no reciben apoyo del gobierno. La gente que ayuda generalmente gana menos de $ 200.00 por año. Las personas usan los préstamos para iniciar o mejorar pequeñas empresas para atender las necesidades de salud, educar a los niños, obtener agua limpia, inodoros, animales de granja, un techo u otra vivienda básica. Nunca hemos tenido un defecto todavía. En los últimos 4 años, hemos otorgado 15 préstamos a personas en 12 países. Los estudiantes han ayudado a refugiados, padres solteros, ancianos, minorías y personas que realmente no tienen nada más que solo quieren ayuda y no un folleto. Los estudiantes han seleccionado quién obtuvo los préstamos después de estudiar posibles candidatos en el sitio web de Kiva.

¡Así se hace los alumnos de octavo grado!
