MICROFINANCE BRIGADES

HONDURAS | PANAMA | GHANA

 

Volunteers empower families in rural communities to increase production and
foster a culture of savings and growth. Volunteers provide financial literacy and
planning, and recommendations for potential loans.

 

   

 

 

  

Volunteers have the opportunity to provide financial
literacy workshops to families to assist in budgeting
and planning. No finance experience needed.

   

 

 

Families that are seeking capital to improve their
family business or try an alternative revenue idea can
work with volunteers to initiate their loan application
and plan.

     

 

 

A portion of volunteers' fundraising goes toward the
capitalization of the local community-owned bank to
utilize for future savings accounts and loans.

   

 

 

Volunteers are provided with translators to assist in
interpreting during workshops.

     
 

The Microfinance Program works with community
leaders to establish a community-owned bank to
provide savings accounts and loans to community
members, and fund community-wide projects.

     
 

Volunteers engage in evening discussions and educational workshops.

JOIN OR LEAD A MICROFINANCE BRIGADE

Microfinance Brigades can be organized through University Microfinance Chapters (15+ volunteers) or small groups (3-5 volunteers). All volunteers fundraise to support the savings and loans, logistical costs of their brigade, and year-round economic development. Brigade Leaders are assigned a Global Brigades Advisor to help them through the coordination process.
