Microfinance California 2009

The Stanford Center for the Study of Poverty and Inequality is proud to partner with “Microfinance, CA” - the first state-wide conference highlighting microfinance as a smart investment for California. 

Presented by Opportunity Fund, Kiva, and the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. 
Principal Sponsorship by Chevron and Wells Fargo. 

Up to 2 Million Entrepreneurs in California can’t access the small amounts of capital they need to get their businesses off the ground. What are we doing to meet this demand? 

Join us for the first state-wide conference on microfinance to:

  • Learn the nuts and bolts of domestic microfinance
  • Visit Bay Area microfinance borrowers through small group tours
  • Understand the impact and future of microfinance in California
  • Contemplate your role in the field of microfinance through small group dinners with practitioners, leaders, and investors.

Thursday, May 28th, 2009.
The Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center at Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA.

Opening Remarks by John Stumpf, Chief Executive Officer, Wells Fargo
