Monday, April 28, 2008 - School, Kinsmen helping in developing countries - School, Kinsmen helping in developing countries: "A non-profit group, Kiva (Swahili for 'agreement' or 'unity') is the world's first and perhaps only online 'micro-lending' organization, meaning participants in the group loan small amounts of money to selected entrepreneurs.

James M. Hill teacher Tyson Theriault said the 26 students in his World Issues 120 class became involved with Kiva when a representative of the Miramichi Kinsmen asked if the school would be interested in participating."
