Lend for America

LEARNING AT A CONFERENCE

On November 7th and 8th, 2015, five members of GenDev’s team attended Lend for America’s 7th Annual Summit at the Georgetown University Hotel and Conference Center. Through this conference, team members learned how to tackle some of the complexities associated with running a campus microfinance organization. Members had the opportunity to interact with industry professionals and connect with like-minded peers. The keynote address for the summit was given by Shah Newaz, the former Chief Advisor of Grameen America. Mr. Newaz oversaw the first instance of Grameen America in 2008 and was in charge of Grameen America’s operations until 2014.
