Join Hempfield High School Students Lending to Change Lives

Students Loan for Change

Hempfield Kiva is student-run club of Hempfield High School teens who are passionate about raising money to fund motivated, hard-working people in the United States and around the world, so Kiva borrowers can access funding that increases chances for better lives.

$1.3 Billion in Loans Lending a Lifeline

KIVA has a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva enables its 1.8 million individual lenders to loan as little as $25 to create opportunities for entrepreneurial growth around the world.

37,492 Lending Teams Strong

Thousands of teams like ours on make microloans to people who repay the money they’ve borrowed over time. Once each loan is repaid, our team will lend those funds again and again to other hopeful, hard-working entrepreneurs.

For a Brighter Future.

We make a living by what we get,
but we make a life by what we give. -Winston Churchill

Sharing Compelling, Poignant Realities

We’ll highlight the real stories of entrepreneurs, explain how microlending works, and share our successes, so others will get involved.

Lending Is More Than a Handout

Our mission is to inspire, educate, and engage others to support emerging entrepreneurs most in need through microfinancing and sharing stories.

Your Loan Becomes a Reinvestment

Kiva Borrowers repay their loans over 96.8% of the time, so your investment can be reloaned repeatedly. Touch more lives with your generosity.

Anyone can help Kiva borrowers around the globe by making a loan as small as $25 through our Kiva Team Lending Page or by sharing our mission.

Giving to Those With the Least Opportunity

We may loan funds to any Kiva borrower with a focus on lending to women, single mothers, and elderly entrepreneurs in need of financing.

Never Too Young, Never Too Busy

Hempfield Kiva students want to show the world that there is no such thing as being too young to make a difference and change lives with lending.

Lending Where Need is Highest

Hempfield Kiva team will collaborate to select borrowers based on their individual stories and in developing regions showing the highest need.

Meet the Students

It started with a loan to Martina in Guatamala who has a son with a disability. He has extremely limited mobility and uses a wheelchair. Married for 24 years, this hardworking mom has picked coffee beans, managed a weaving business, and recently started a cafeteria snack business to support her family’s increasing financial needs.
Martina inspired Alexia Haski to make a loan with her money from babysitting, and the idea grew to bring Kiva lending to friends, family and the world!  Meet Alexia and friends who are  now loaning for change.
