University of Utah is a chapter of Global Business Brigades, an international movement of university students and professionals building economic opportunities in the developing world. We work alongside promising entrepreneurs and experienced year-round staff to create financial opportunities in remote, rural, and under resourced areas of Honduras and Ghana. We work with communities to build community-owned banks to provide access to loans, savings accounts and financial literacy for community members. Volunteers assist in consulting micro-enterprises, assessing loan capacity payments and providing financial literacy workshops to families. nnIn conjunction with our Business Program, Global Brigades also supports communities with healthcare, sanitation and clean water projects, and uniquely implements these programs in a holistic model to meet a community’s health and economic goals. Our model systematically builds community ownership and collaboratively executes programs with the end goal of sustainably evolving to a relationship of impact monitoring.

University of Utah Business Brigade December 2017 Honduras
Dec 17, 2017 - Dec 23, 2017

Global Brigades offers 7-day Business & Microfinance Brigades throughout the year in Honduras and Panama. Microfinance Brigades volunteers provide financial literacy workshops and consultation to rural community banks. Throughout the brigade, volunteers divide into groups where they visit several families in their homes. During the community visits, volunteers develop an understanding of the families’ ways of life, aspirations and financial literacy. Following the visits, volunteers discuss their recommendations to the community bank on how they can improve their operations based on the information that was collected during the house visits. Additionally, students hold educational workshops with community members about the community bank focused on topics such as budgeting, savings incentives programs, and loans. At the end of week, students determine how they will allocate their Project Fund, whether it may be to an individual family or a lump sum donated to the community bank.
