Lend for America compiled this resource for students to have an always available reference during the first years of start-up. The following material has been compiled and written by students engaged and working in domestic microenterprise. We are not advocating a “right” way to run an organization rather trying to bring together some learnings and best practices taken from these experiences. This guide is for emerging campus based organizations to determine whether their community can support a microfinance initiative and outlines best practices for getting started with offering microfinance products and services. Additional resources on microenterprise development and student leadership are referenced in the last few sections. We encourage you to rely on all of these resources to avoid common mistakes.
