Yesterday our 3rd Grade looked closely at the Kiva site. They noticed that many loans were running out of time… If a loan isn’t fully funded before it expires, all contributing lenders will be refunded. So, they looked through the “Expiring Soon” section and found Edwin, a fisherman in El Salvador. He was in need of $25 and our site had $25 to lend! Four hours remained and they were able to make his dream happen with a click of the mouse! The students were thrilled to see his picture disappear knowing they made his day!
Side note… Edwin was the only one we could afford to help today, many were in need of hundreds of dollars….students believed God had a hand in today’s Kiva lesson 🙂
