- Social Innovation Fellowship
The Capital Good Fund (CGF) is a non-profit microlender based in Providence, Rhode Island. Our mission is to create a poverty-free, inclusive green economy through innovative microfinance. In order to achieve this mission, CGF offers three types of loans: Citizenship loans, green business loans, and green credit-builder loans. My project this summer focused primarily on expanding organizational capacity through fundraising; refinining borrower selection, loan administration, and social impact evaluation methodologies; and researching how small energy-efficient upgrades in the household can have far-reaching environmental and economic benefits for low to moderate-income homeowners.
The bottom line: Rebranding a City
