We would like to thank all of the presenters and attendees who came to the 2011 Microfinance Summit and help us reach our goal of highlighting the local and international work of San Diego’s microfinance organizations and promote collaboration across the area’s microfinace community.
The summit featured Gina Harman, CEO of The ACCION Network, Maika Hemphill, Portfolio Manager for North America with KIVA, and Claudia Viek, CEO of CAMEO. Through the speakers and plenary sessions, participants learned about international microfinance, domestic microfinance and how organizations such as Kiva, ACCION USA, and other local microlenders who are providing financing to entrepreneurs who couldn’t access traditional financing before.
