KIVA - International Service Project (Year 4)

This exciting project involves classes selecting and making small business loans to poor people in poor countries around the world to help lift them out of poverty. These loans go to people who typically make less than $5 a day. We loaned over $2,225 this year and will loan out an additional $200 in December on To see our project, go to, click community, search Talmadge, click Talmadge Middle School, and click loans to see our cool project. Some students may or have done their own loans/project from home. If you are going to do the project, try to start it soon!
