Jessica Hansen, Education Director at Kiva, generously shared her time to Skype with my current and first trimester Social Entrepreneurship students. Our Skype with Ms. Hansen was both informational and inspirational! Ms. Hansen and her colleagues shared how they got involved with Kiva and their thoughts on the amazing impact that Kiva and microfinancing has on the lives of people all around the world! Our students had so many questions - we ran out of time!
Students also spent time considering the feasibility of their KIVA Karnival project ideas - striving to determine what products and activities would be most effective in earning money to loan through Kiva. Stay tuned for our outcomes!
