    hello! Microfinance can be a great means towards achieving the social end of uplifting the lives of the poor families I believe that microfinance can become an effective tool for wealth creation by providing the poor with improved facilities to save and to have better access to credit.
    If you have plans to start a microfinance project anywhere else in southeast asia, please consider my country (Philippines) we need more people like you(organizations like yours) to help my country rise from poverty.
    I pray for the success of your organization.

    Hello. I am extremely interested in becoming involved and starting a career in the microfinance sector. In a few years I am planning to apply to MBA programs for international development, specifically in the microfinance sector. I am in the midst of a transition into this arena from the entertainment industry. Do you know of any volunteer opportunities available where I can at least get my foot in the door?

    I have already put together a microfinance project for my youth group through Kiva and have attended a few seminars.

    I live in Los Angeles, so any help that you can give would be very much appreciated.

    Hi – I’ve been serving as the Director of Marketing and Business Analysis for SF Global Group (Transfercel) here in Los Angeles for a little over a year but have decided to look for something else. SF Global Group is a start-up preparing to launch its first product – a low-cost prepaid debit card that allows people to send remittances cheaply by mobile phone. I’m looking to work as a Project Manager for another microfinance company in Los Angeles.

    Does anyone have any leads?

    I have a robust resume that includes years of experience in microfinance and four years at Harvard Business School working as a research associate and faculty assistant.
