Uganda College Internships - 2014
2014 Uganda Interns Amanda Conklin And Morgan Nelson

Amanda Conklin and Morgan Nelson are the 2014 college summer interns at the WMI office in Buyobo, Uganda. Amanda is from Huntington, New York and is going into her sophomore year at the University of Notre Dame. She is studying International Economics and International Development. Morgan will be a junior at Princeton University in the upcoming Fall. She is from Key West, Florida and is interested in journalism and international development. She is majoring in Politics. Both have worked with microfinance in the past and are excited to be in Buyobo working with the ladies in the loan program.

This summer they will be helping the loan hubs to increase financial literacy among administrators. They will help administrators create expense sheets and budgets to better organize their hubs. Morgan and Amanda will be continuing the longitudinal study started by last year's interns and will be focusing specifically on the transition of WMI borrowers into business after their loan cycle has ended. The study will show WMI's lasting impact in the region. They are also creating a new video for the WMI website.
