Volunteer Activity Description:
Microfinance Brigades works to empower rural Honduran communities by establishing community banks and teaching community members basic business practices. Students and professionals will work alongside partner organizations FINCA and FUNDER to hold a microfinance workshop in the target community and visit entrepreneurial minded individuals within that community to work with them on developing their business models. At the end of the week each volunteer is allotted $100 from their program donation to sponsor loans or invest to best support the sustainable development of the community members you met.
