Welcome to Aloha Kiva Kids, a Kiva-inspired, kids-focused, globally-engaged, Kiva-lending team founded by high schoolers Keala Raatior and Abby Jensen when they were 4th graders at Chiefess Kapiolani Elementary and Volcano School of Arts & Sciences on Hawaii Island. Their goal is to lend their allowances or other money they raised to Kivaʻs entrepreneurs around the world. Through the Kiva microlending method, kids can lend $25 at a time to entrepreneurs around the world who need small loans to get their businesses off the ground and out of poverty. Microlending then becomes a way for kids to share the Aloha Spirit globally.
Contact us and together, we will figure out ways to inspire our kids to compassionate leaders and positive role models for each other.
