Event: Launch Party for Microfinance in Ghana, July 23

Young Entrepreneurs Host Launch Party for Microfinance in Ghana

Last summer recent UW graduate Samantha Rayner founded Lumana Credit, a micro-credit organization dedicated to empowering rural and under-served populations in Ghana through entrepreneurship.

After a successful year of inspiring and supporting entrepreneurs in rural Ghana, Lumana is throwing a party to kick off its 2009 expansion initiative.

Join us for a night of great company, music, beer & wine and appetizers, as we explore the world-changing potential of microfinance.

Appetizers will be provided by Seattle’s award-winning Serafina and Batholomew Komoah will set the mood with beautiful, traditional Ghanaian music.

Tickets are $35 ($25 for students), includes appetizers, beer & wine, entertainment, and the opportunity to be a part of Lumana’s drive for social entrepreneurship!

Each ticket sale will directly fund 1/3 of loan for a Ghanaian entrepreneur.
