Are you in your 20s or 30s with a passion for microfinance and philanthropy? Then join the HFLS Next Generation Network, aka Next Gen!

As part of the Network, you’ll join like-minded, socially-conscious young professionals at events where you’ll hear from HFLS borrowers who achieved their dreams, learn about HFLS’s work, and hear from leaders in the fields of economic development, microfinance, and philanthropy.

The Network is led by the Next Gen Steering Committee, which plans and coordinates programs for the Network and supports HFLS through fundraising and volunteer work. Meet the phenomenal members of the Next Gen Steering Committee below.
