About this fundraiser

The Waunakee High School Global Studies class has decided to participate in funding people around the world with small loans through the organization called Kiva. These loans could potentially better their lives.
From the Kiva website:
"More than 1.7 billion people around the world are unbanked and can't access the financial services they need. Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 in San Francisco, with a mission to expand financial services access to help underserved communities thrive.
We do this by crowdfunding loans and unlocking capital for the underserved, improving the quality and cost of financial services, and addressing the underlying barriers to financial access around the world. Through Kiva's work, students can pay for tuition, women can start businesses, farmers are able to invest in equipment and families can afford needed emergency care.
By lending as littles as $5 on Kiva, you can be part of the solution and make a real difference in someone's life. 100 % of every dollar you lend on Kiva goes to funding loans."
The Global Studies students were able to see many people looking for lending from many of the countries they have been studying and they have chosen an individual to lend money to. Once the loan is paid back, a future class can choose another individual to lend to. This campaign will be ongoing.
