News Features | The financial/social benefits of campus business clubs | Straight.com: "Smith said that SFU business student Sean Peters is overseeing the creation of Agents of Change campus clubs. 'This year is the pilot,' Smith said, 'and by 2008, we would like to blow it right across North America and get as many students as possible involved in direct student-led philanthropy.' Earlier this year, Smith and 21 others rode their bicycles to Tijuana, Mexico, to raise funds for microcredit lending. The money is distributed to entrepreneurs in the developing world through www.kiva.org/, which enables donors to learn about the borrower's business plan."
