About this grant
This renewal grant to the Aspen Institute provides partial funding for the Scale Academy for Microenterprise Development. The academy is an initiative designed to provide funding, peer learning, and technical assistance to high performing microenterprise development organizations committed to scaling up their operations to serve more aspiring entrepreneurs. Through participation in the academy, member organizations are expected to strengthen their capacities, achieve a marked increase in the number of clients served and/or loans made, and work together to advance each other’s progress.
