Introduction Kiva High School is a national network if high school students, along with the Mona Shores chapter and other respective chapters, unified by s belief that poverty can be alleviated and that microfinance is an effective tool to achieve this end. We organized our chapter of Kiva High School to join with like minded students in our communtiy and around the country to raise money to battle poverty, not with sympathy, but with business transactions rooted in mutual dignity. Kiva High School, as well as our chapter, our guidedby these goals, which we affirm to be our mission: 1) To inspire awareness of global issues, especially poverty and hunger; 2) to bring together and organize students interested in fighting poverty, using this organization as a central process; 3) to allow high school students to play a direct role in alleviating global poverty; and 4)to encourage interest in microfinance as a tool to combat poverty; *To raise money to invest in worthy entrepreneurs in developing states, countering the predatory loaning practices so prevalent among the world's poorest regions.
