Kiva Lender International School Rheintal
I loan because:
We loan because our students understand the huge difference that a small loan can make to individuals, families and communities. Our students took part in a project called 'Grow your CHF5', where they borrowed 5 Swiss Francs from the school, and used it to start a small business. After 6 weeks, they repaid their loan and calculated their profit. They paid 30% 'tax' on their profit, which provided the funds for our first US$900 to loan via Kiva.
We are a small international school in Switzerland with students ranging from Kindergarten to Grade 12. Our students' involvement in Kiva is a wonderful way to inspire international mindedness and responsible engagement.
