Millikin University - Decatur, IL
The Millikin Microfinance Fund
The mission of the Millikin Microfinance Fund is:
  1. To bring positive social change to the Dominican Republic by using microfinance and business consulting to support women entrepreneurs in poor economic situations and
  2. To provide an international, educational opportunity for the Millikin community.

Through organizing both funds and business knowledge the MMF utilizes strategic partners to distribute these crucial business resources to less fortunate business owners in the Caribbean. The MMF is a unique vehicle for students to embody the Millikin mission. Through international experiences, business skill development, and heightened social consciousness students have the opportunity to develop into ethically-grounded global citizens.

MMF members meet every second and fourth Sunday at 2:00 pm in the HUB. The HUB is located at 1135 W. Wood Street, Suite 3.
