Since 2009, Spartan Global has extended over $101,000 in microloans - more than 99% have been repaid.
The Spartan Global Development Fund is a student-run initiative on the campus of Michigan State University, and is comprised of two partner organizations: a registered student organization and a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Spartan Global consists of students, professors, and alumni who 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 interest-free microloans to aspiring entrepreneurs throughout developing regions of world.
As we look back on the 2017-2018 academic year, we are excited to share what we have been up to, the impact of our work, and what we are able to accomplish with the generous support from our donors.
