Welcome to Aloha Kiva Kids, a Kiva-inspired, kids-focused, globally-engaged, Kiva-lending team founded by 5th grader friends Keala Raatior from Main Street Elementary School in Soquel, California (formerly of Chiefess Kapiʻolani Elementary School in Hilo) and Abby Jensen from Volcano School of Arts & Sciences on Hawaii Island. Their goal is to lend their allowances or other money they earned 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.
