SCG was proud to offer an invitation-only gathering with Andrea Jung, President & CEO of Grameen America focusing on Grameen’s newly announced LA microlending initiative in partnership with California Community Foundation. As Grameen and CCF announced publicly the day before, Grameen’s goal is to provide $650 million in micro-loans to 91,000 women-owned businesses in the Los Angeles area.

This small private luncheon provided an opportunity to learn more about this impressive initiative and engage in an informal discussion with Andrea Jung and others from the Grameen executive team.

Andrea Jung is the President and CEO of Grameen America. Ms. Jung joins Grameen America in April 2014 with the goal of scaling the organization to solve economic issues for women and their families across the country. She is the former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Avon Products, Inc., where she served as CEO from 1999 through April 2012, and as Chairman from 2011 through December 2012.
