The Campus Microfinance Alliance is a coalition of nearly a dozen student-run microfinance groups that have already lent more than $150,000 to disadvantaged entrepreneurs who need it most. Now, they are expanding the program even further.
Working as part-time cooks, cleaners, handymen, jewelry makers and seamstresses, the entrepreneurs the organization benefits work their trades throughout America. Long on talent and drive, these would-be entrepreneurs could revitalize urban economies.
Today on American Morning, Ali Velshi sits down with Campus Microfinance Alliance co-founders Rohan Mathew and Andy Postner and member Sinye Tang, to discuss the idea behind the organization.
