Volunteer Opportunity in Nicaragua

Here is an opportunity that may interest some of myKRO’s readers…

Live in beautiful colonial Granada, Nicaragua, and volunteer in microfinancing. No experience necessary. We will train you. We make small zero-interest loans to people who make less than $2 a day so they may start small businesses. We are looking for someone who can commit to this position for at least six months, but preference will be be given to those who can commit for nine months, a year, or longer. You should know some Spanish, but you do not have to be fluent. You should be comfortable with a computer and the internet. Most importantly, you must want to engage in anti-poverty work that makes a real difference in people’s lives.

If this is you, please contact smarks@bu.edu.
