We’re proud to announce we have reached several milestones at our newest Grameen America branch in Newark, NJ. Opened in November 2016, Newark marks our 19th branch location nation-wide. Since opening nearly six months ago, the branch has invested over $100,900 in microloans to 100 women entrepreneurs. They have set aside almost $3,000 collectively in their new savings accounts opened with the support of Grameen America. We look forward to continuing our growth and investment in the Newark community.
