Beyond Banking: The Faces of Microfinance

An Exhibit Presented by the Duke Microfinance Leadership Initiative (DMLI)
Microfinance provides disadvantaged populations, particularly women, an opportunity to develop their own businesses with the aid of loans and other small scale financial services. Since Muhammad Yunus won the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize, microfinance has gained great resonance around the globe and the potential for development continues to expand.This photo exhibit pays tribute to the power of microfinance and the people involved in the process.

The opening reception for Beyond Banking will be held at Perkins on Wednesday, 19 March, from 5-8pm.  Come, enjoy free food, and chat with DMLI and DukeEngage about opportunities on and off campus in the field of microfinance.

After Beyond Banking closes at Perkins on 31 March, it will move to Fuqua. The exhibit has already been shown at the Sanford Institute.

The exhibit is funded by Duke Engage as is a Microfinance summer program with BRAC in Bangladesh.
