The Thunderbird Micro Finance Association (TMFA) had an informal Meet-and-Greet event at the Sobo Lounge earlier this week.
It was TMFA’s first event for the trimester. It was a great turn out. The event involved educating the new students about what microfinance is and how it is different from the other clubs. Our in-house microfinance experts Connor, Laurene and Rox took turns to speak to the students about microfinance and the career opportunities for students in this domain.
The leadership team spent time to speak to the ideas of the students and answer the questions they had. The President of TMFA, Sanchita, announced the start of the project in North East India that involves a team from Thunderbird to provide a feasibility study on the implementation of microfinance and develop a supply chain for it.
The meet and greet event was a roaring success as it provided a great platform for incoming students to network with final year students who had their internship in microfinance and get to know first hand about their experiences and challenges. TMFA intends to have more events during this trimester. Watch out for this space!
