This project serves as a vehicle to demonstrate the university’s interest and investment in promoting regional economic growth.
Interns are responsible for identifying local businesses in need of consulting and microcredit, then working with Kiva or SBDC in securing microloans for the businesses. This will be followed up by monitoring the successful implementation of the microloan agreements and the business effects.
Information for local small businesses that are interested in participating in the program is provided by clicking on the "Information" menu button above.
