Please join us for this webinar on November 18th at 5:00 PM EDT to look into Microfinance and how we can easily come together to help to empower people around the globe to lift them out of povery by providing them with small loans to support them in buying chickens, buying a sewing machine, fabrics, seeds, and many other things that enable them to be more productive members of their societies.

We will look, in particular, at the non-profit organization Kiva that provides a platform to connect borrowers around the globe - via field partners in their home countries - with lenders in the US and Europe who come togehter to support those loans via crowd-funding.

Microfinance is an important topic for Rotary's area of focus concerning "Growing Local Economies" and, in particular, is a large focus for the Rotary Action Group for Community Economic Development
