Since 2009, Spartan Global has distributed over $60,000 in microloans - more than 99% have been repaid.
The Spartan Global Development Fund is a student-run initiative at Michigan State University. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Spartan Global consists of students, professors, and alumni. Members work to expand awareness and support for microfinance while building lasting partnerships in the quest for permanent solutions to global poverty. We aim to educate, inspire, and enable tomorrow’s agents of global change by raising funds locally in order to offer microloans to aspiring entrepreneurs throughout the developing world.
