Bringing Microfinance to Life for a Younger Generation

Guest Post by Hannah Gallen, Development and Communications Summer Intern While this unique experience served to demonstrate the importance of taking the abstract value of microfinance and making it concrete, I believe that it is possible to make that value less abstract through education. Ideally, high schools will one day prioritize the discussion of financial identity with and amongst students, stressing the importance of financial inclusion. I will be teaching a course at my high school in the fall entitled Social Entrepreneurship: A Sideways Look at Capitalism. If not to exclusively spotlight microfinance and the classical Grameen model, I intend for this course to emphasize the importance of taking an innovative approach to solving any issue.
