In Global Business Brigades we spend the year fundraising in order to collect $1,500 dollars to give to the community-owned bank in the area where we decide to take the brigade. Once that amount is reached the remainder of the funds are split between the members who have the most participation hours in fundraising events. In order to organize the brigade the executive board works hand in hand with a chapter advisor who works with Global Brigades and with a program associate who works for Global Brigades in the country that we decide to take the brigade. On the brigade we provide financial planning workshops in order to increase financial literacy around a culture of savings and borrowing while helping banks to increase membership, improve operations, and identify lower risk borrowers. Additionally we utilize business consulting frameworks to identify increased income and resolve financial challenges of small rural businesses. We also help small businesses to decide on the feasibility of utilizing low-interest loans or creating a savings strategy to reach their economic goals
