CUNA/Federation Scaling Microfinance Webinar Is Tomorrow
MADISON, Wis. and NEW YORK (3/18/13)--The Credit Union National Association and the National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions will host a free webinar, "Scaling MicroFinance--Raising Credit Unions to a Higher Power," at 1-2:30 p.m. CT Tuesday.

The webinar will explore how some credit unions can pursue microenterprise lending as a sustainable source of growth.

From consumer credit to small business and microenterprise loans, most credit unions are in the business of microfinance. As insured depositories, credit unions can offer a full range of savings and asset-building products in tandem with small and micro-loans.

The webinar will discuss how to engage community partners and implement sustainable small- dollar-amount lending programs to meet the needs of low income consumers and underserved micro- and small businesses.

To register for the webinar, use the link.
