Hi everyone! I hope everyone is well and survived the blizzard. Just wanted to let you all know that Accion International, a Boston-based NGO, is hosting a very special presentation delving into the world of microfinance. Senior Director of Resource Development, Erika Eurkus, and Kate McGrath, Manager of the Accion Ambassadors Program, will be discussing the basics of microfinance development here in the US and abroad. In addition, they'll highlight the pressing issues within the microfinance industry today and how each of you can get involved, namely through the Accion Ambassadors Program. The program sends interested volunteers to Accion's partner microfinance institutions where they can document the impact of microfinance on the poor. Event starts at 6:30 p.m. and light refreshments will be served.
