Kiva Lending Team: Kiva Camp
We loan because...
...Kiva’s socially driven, impact focused, and continually innovative model is inherently attractive to students and teachers around the world!
Kiva Camp is an innovative student leadership annual training retreat that brings together Campus Kiva and Kiva High School chapter leaders, as well as select educators from around the country for a 2-day camp filled with educational workshops, inspiring speakers, networking, and fun.
Putting resources into outreach with education groups is critical not only because cultivating engaged, compassionate, and well-informed global citizens fits with Kiva’s culture and long-term vision, but also because the targets of this outreach are going to grow up to be a different breed of philanthropists than have ever existed before.
Today’s elementary, high school, and college-aged students are part of a generation that will force a shift in philanthropy. This is a generation that has grown up on the Internet, values social connection, and believes in their capacity to make a direct and tangible impact on the world.

Mavuno Harvest received a loan from Stephanie to increase smallholder farmers’ incomes by buying unsold fruit that would otherwise go to waste and selling it as dried fruit.
