Social Science students reach KIVA milestone



On September 18, Cowley Social Science students chose seven recipients all located in Kenya, to loan $400 to for a variety of entrepreneurial ventures. These loans bring the total number of loans made to 154 and the total amount is over $10,000.

Cowley has been participating in the KIVA microloan program since January of 2009. Students have raised the money for these loans with various fundraisers and donations over the years.

Anyone can participate in the KIVA program by going to their website, or the college’s Social Science Department will gladly accept donations. Contact Cathy Hendricks at 620-441-5309 if you have questions or would like to make a donation.
