Media Alert: Doherty High School Microloan Funding Gala - 01/12/18

On Tuesday, January 16, 7-8 p.m., freshmen at Doherty High School, 4515 Barnes Road, will host a Microloan Funding Gala. The Colorado Springs community has been invited to come to the gala to give feedback and assistance in assessing project proposals. The media is invited to attend this event.

Microloans are small loans given to the poor. All of the loans will be funded through and managed by Kiva, a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. The loans are made through secured Paypal transactions. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world.
