Guest Speaker on Microfinance, Crowdfunding, & Kiva Zip

KivaZip Flyer (1)Join us on Wednesday, April 30th from 6:00pm to 7:00pm for Kiva Zip’s guest speaker, Mr. Robert Breen, on entrepreneurship.

Did you know that over 20% of US households are under-banked, and that one in every twelve US households is actually un-banked? Even in the United States, financial literacy and microfinance are vitally important for personal empowerment. Come join Microfinancing at GW in a conversation with Robert Breen of Kiva Zip, a program launched by Kiva to enable users to directly fund entrepreneurs in the United States and Kenya. We’ll be discussing microfinance in developed countries, financial empowerment, and how people and organizations can utilize crowdfunding platforms to raise funds for their ventures.

 

Marvin Center Room 403, cookies & coffee will be provided.
