The University of San Diego hosts the 2nd annual San Diego Microfinance Summit.
The goal of the summit is to highlight the local and international work of San Diego’s microfinance organizations in order to promote collaboration across the area’s microfinance community. The summit will feature a plenary address, speaker panel and a series of breakout sessions on various topical issues related to microfinance. Lunch will be provided by local restaurateurs who are also current microfinance clients. In addition to food, there will be an artisan marketplace where other microfinance clients will sell their wares and services. Among the expected vendors will be artisans, bakers and entrepreneurs. There will be two breakout sessions in the afternoon in order to help attendees delve further into various topics of microfinance. The summit will close with a catered networking reception.
