support their families and strengthen their communities.
Presentation by Jodi Fischer, Senior Director of Development, Adelante
Jodi leads Adelante’s U.S. based activities and fundraising initiatives. She regularly works with and visits the field office staff and Adelante borrowers. She also facilitates impact tours with supporters wishing to visit Honduras. Jodi graduated with a MA in International Development from the University of Denver. She is a community development specialist with nearly twenty years of program management experience with mission driven organizations in the US and abroad. Specializing in education, microfinance, and economic development, she also possesses experience working on clean energy, global health, and food security issues. She sees microfinance as the most powerful sustainable solution for underserved populations seeking self-sufficiency.
Jodi is currently residing in Roatan to be closer to the microfinance work of Adelante and help the Honduran team expand operations to the island and provide more women living in poverty with financial resources to start/grow their enterprises. Jodi will discuss her work there, as well as share updates on other WE-supported programming and the impact it has for women in Honduras.
