Up to Two Million Entrepreneurs in California can’t access the small amounts of capital they need to get their business off the ground. What are U.S. microfinance organizations doing to meet this demand?
Join us for the first state-wide conference on microfinance to:
• Learn the nuts and bolts of domestic microfinance
• Visit Bay Area microfinance borrowers through small group tours
• Understand the impact and future of microfinance in California
• Contemplate your role in the field of microfinance through small group dinners with practitioners, leaders and investors.
The event will bring together 300-350 investors, policymakers, practitioners and clients to demonstrate the success of microfinance in California to date and to raise resources to increase access to microfinance services.
Presented by: Opportunity Fund, Kiva and Silicon Valley Community Foundation
Thursday May 28th at Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center, Stanford, CA
