Penn Microfinance strives to be an effective social impact group by connecting students with field work. Currently, our students work with MFI’s in Bangladesh, China, Ghana, India, Nicaragua, and the United States in order better serve their clients.
Penn Microfinance is the host of the first and largest undergraduate microfinance conference in the United States. Every year in mid-spring, Penn Microfinance welcomes industry leaders, non-profit groups, and academics alike.
Penn Microfinance also conducts research about the microfinance movement. We are always looking to improve the infrastructure that exists in the industry as well as raise awareness and understanding about our work.
