Kiva Lending Team: 5B1 Mr. Weaver's Class 2009-2010
We loan because...
We loan because we understand that we are very fortunate. We have had many positive things happen to us in our lives. Others are not so fortunate due to situations out of their control. By loaning some funds to a creative, resilient person such as Betty, we are hopefully giving her the opportunity to control her future. The money she is able to make with this loan will hopefully provide her and her family with more options. Another benefit of the Kiva loan program is the added sense of achievement one gains from running a personal business. Betty will hopefully encourage other females in her community to become educated entrepreneurs too. By building the capacity of a community, confidence and hope are nurtured for future generations.
The 5B1 All-Stars are a group of kind-hearted ten year-olds who try their best to help others when the opportunity arises. We love to learn about new places and new people. We chose to donate to Kiva because we are studying about different cultures and we heard stories about people in other countries not having as many opportunities in life as we have. One of our goals for this year is to look for ways to help our community. And for us, our community is the world as many of us come from all around the globe.
