Kiva Lending Team: Students Against Global Apathy (SAGA)
We loan because...
there is no shortage of intelligence, hard work, ingenuity, or passion in developing countries -- the only thing lacking is opportunity. Kiva is a catalyst for change!
Mission Statement: We inspire and engage youth to become global citizens who creatively solve the problems of our future world.
Brief Intro: Students Against Global Apathy (SAGA) is a groundbreaking new student organization at the University of Alberta that was literally born very, very late one night in a small tent at the footsteps of Mount Kilimanjaro. SAGA is fun, innovative, 100% non-profit, and we will change your attitude about global poverty. Our mission is simple: to get YOU thinking because you are more powerful than you think. Students are the future of the world and as such, we can determine what kind of world we want to live in and what kind of world we want for future generations. SAGA, as young minds with open hearts, strongly believe that that the suffering of fellow human beings is the greatest shame of our modern society. We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice — where poverty is defeated and all human beings on the planet live in peace, security and sustainability. Tsk…. not possible you say. Just watch us.

Izo received a loan from Jenn to buy a milk cow and calves for her little farm to make more cheese for the local market.
