"The loan was great and helped me get started, but what made the biggest difference was my mentor." - Gavin
We rely on the passion, curiosity and wisdom of our volunteers to do what we do. We are always looking for people to volunteer to support the work of the organization as well as support the work of the entrepreneurs we serve.
Mentorship is the cornerstone of success at Community Micro Lending. In addition to ongoing staff support, all entrepreneurs who receive a loan are matched with a mentor for the life of their loan. Mentors are chosen from a pool of volunteers, from the local business community, who are keen to provide support to those in the early stages of business. Mentors share their knowledge, guidance and time with their entrepreneur in order to ensure higher business success and personal empowerment.
We welcome people with business knowledge and skills, motivational capacity, and passion for the community to join our team of mentors. If you're interested in mentoring, please click here to sign up and we will be in touch with you shortly.
