A brief description of the enterprise:

GLOBE, a student-managed academic program at St. John’s University, the Peter J. Tobin College of Business, provides loans to entrepreneurs in the developing world. Through GLOBE, students are educated about the world of microfinance while helping the poorest of the poor help themselves and their families out of poverty. Students, in describing their mission as part of GLOBE, say: “We are committed to building a global community (starting here at St. John's) that is going to contribute to the goal of eradicating poverty within our lifetime.”

GLOBE STUDENTS manage all aspects of the program including vetting loan applications, marketing the program, tracking funds flows, fundraising, providing technology to the field, and measuring program success.
