Despite the availability of career practitioners and resources, many people are not finding work. Often, the barriers to employment are not because of a lack of opportunities, but rather the financial costs of obtaining employment.

  • Value of micro-lending in career services
  • Understanding how micro-lending can lead to better/ more fulfilling employment
  • Understanding of how accessing small credit can increase employability
