Would you recommend Rocky Mountain MicroFinance Institute (RMMFI)?

by Jean-Marc S. from Denver, CO (April 13, 2018)
I have gone through RMMFI's entrepreneurship program and on graduation night, a friend commented he had never felt so welcomed, by the staff, fellow volunteers, and the partners. There is a reason the same people come back year after to year to partner with RMMFI to give back to this community. I look forward to giving back myself.
