Congrats to the team of UW Grads who are brining microfinance to Ghana with their project — Lumana Credit! There is a launch event this coming Thursday, July 23rd, in Seattle for those interested. I’ll be attending the Techflash event taking place that same evening, so won’t be able to make it — but for those in the Seattle area interested in microfinance, I’d highly recommend attending.

Particularly since I’m a University of Washington grad (2005) and passionate about microfinance, it’s great to see this type of initiative come out of UW!
