Microfinance USA Conference Exhibition 2011

What you see here in the exhibition is the culmination of three months of work visiting and documenting borrowers whose microloans were funded by Opportunity Fund (in and around San Francisco) and Accion USA (in and Around New York City).

The photographs offer insight into the lives and businesses of the entrepreneurs, affording a chance to bring microfinance to life by seeing the lived experience of microloan borrowers through photography. The photographs convey a message the sentiments of success and joy of the participants, whilst bringing a sense of the impact and powerful approach microfinance and its practitioners, investors, and enthusiasts have brought and can bring to peoples lives and futures in the USA.
