Recap of CMA 1st Speaker Event
The Colorado Microfinance Alliance and DU’s Korbel School of International Studies hosted JD Bergeron in November of 2013. JD shared photos and stories from his nearly 10 years of development work which has included stints with Kiva and Accion International.
In front of an audience of nearly 40, JD finished his presentation with highlights of his work as Executive Director of Truelift. Truelift is an organization that aims to measure which microfinance organizations are truly working towards the objective of lifting their clientele out of poverty. Similar to the Fair Trade movement, his organization hopes to create a mark or seal that indicates which organizations have truly committed to creating positive and enduring changes for those living in poverty.
Stay Tuned! The CMA plans on more speakers in 2014!
