Kiva Lending Team: The B.I.G. Idea
We loan because...
We wanted to create a legacy of loan opportunities for entrepreneurs around the world, managed entirely by biz students on our side of it.
Welcome to our B.I.G. Idea. Our student managed Business Investment Group! Learners and Loaners.
What's The BIG Idea? Inspired high school students in Canada that want to intelligently change the world and cause a ripple effect long after we've graduated.
Our Business Investment Group allows us to make small loans as small teams but make a BIG difference.
Individual students or "partnerships" are given national "identities" at the start of the semester. These individuals invest under The B.I.G. Idea banner and are collectively monitored by the class as part of the learning experience. However, student investments have their own individual identity throughout the semester and can be held, expanded or divested by them, at their discretion, at the end of the course. Part of the BIG idea however is that student's are encouraged to grow their committment to international microloan investment as they become mature and professional adults!
