Microfinance as Ministry Workshop
This workshop is designed for congregations to explore specific topics and issues in microfinance. It can be led by a local facilitator who has experience in the field of microfinance, or the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) can arrange for a faciltator. The workshop helps participants gain a clear understanding of how microfinance works and provides an opportunity to discuss issues in faith-based microfinance and microfinance in general. After discussing these issues, participants will have the opportunity to explore ways to become involved, both on a personal and a congregational level. Participants will also have the opportunity to create a task force that can help the rest of the congregation understand microfinance and how they can become involved from an institutional perspective.
