Our second program in October on Economic and Community Development, addresses the important subject of Entrepreneurship and Microfinance.  It features a presentation at the 2017 Rotary Presidential Peace Conference, preceding the Rotary International Convention in Atlanta, Georgia.  The program’s presenter is Summer Lewis, who heads the True Roots Consulting Group, which focuses on various aspects of growing communities through entrepreneurship and microfinance.  Summer is also a former Rotary Peace Fellow.
The presentation covers the following subjects:
  1. The connection between economic and community development, peace and microfinance.
  2. Critiques and cautions to consider when it comes to microfinance.
  3. Rotary’s involvement with economic and community development projects globally.
  4. A quick blueprint for planning and measuring the impact of an entrepreneurship project, based on her work as a consultant in project planning, monitoring and evaluation.
