Melbourne Microfinance Initiative


The Melbourne Microfinance Initiative [MMI] provides students a unique opportunity to actively take part in consulting projects throughout the Asia-Pacific, assisting microfinance institutions in their goal of alleviating poverty.


Microfinance revolves around the idea of providing low-income individuals the access to safe, transparent and affordable credit options, often through no-interest or low-interest loans. Beyond these projects, MMI hosts a number of social impact focused events.
