About Business Brigades
Business Brigades volunteers work with community bank loan officers to consult potential borrowers on improving financial sustainability through a 10 day Business Brigade in Panama or Ghana. Student volunteers can either join an existing Business Brigades chapter on their campus or create their own chapter and recruit other volunteers. Volunteers provide rural communities with the educational, financial, and organizational resources necessary to sustainably drive their own economic development. The business brigade volunteers serve as a catalyst to loan borrowers, providing consulting methodologies, financial workshops and donating a “capital investment” to the community bank to back the loan.
