We loan because...
As part of the Vanderbilt Microfinance Club, we strive to increase the ways we battle poverty by investing in others' success.
With Dr. Muhammad Yunus, a Vanderbilt graduate, as inspiration, we hope to carry on the use of microfinance from the Vanderbilt campus.

“Lasting peace cannot be achieved unless large population groups find ways in which to break out of poverty. Microcredit is one such means."
-- Nobel Peace Prize Committee
