Business and Microfinance

Trip Locations: Honduras, Ghana, and Panama (dependent on brigade)

The Global Business Brigades and Global Microfinance Brigades address similar economic issues in rural communities and work hand in hand in various ways. The objective of Business Brigades is to provide business consulting, family financial planning assistance and strategic investment; along a parallel perspective, Microfinance Brigades aims for the establishment and growth of community owned savings and loan institutions that will stimulate the local economy and foster micro-enterprise growth.

Volunteers are not required to have any business or microfinance experience prior to the brigade. Rather, these programs are designed as experiences themselves and strive to provide a tangible representation of principles learned in class.
