Newport Woman Leads Microlending Trip to Nicaragua

National Association of Women Business Owners Institute Chair Elect and Opportunity International Ambassador Loreen Gilbert of Newport Beach, along with NAWBO National CEO Jen Earle, are leading an inspirational immersion trip to Nicaragua. 

The trip began on Nov. 27 and continues through Dec. 3.

“The NAWBO Institute and Opportunity International will work together to transform a country by investing in women business owners in Nicaragua,” said Gilbert, president and founder of WealthWise Financial Services in Newport Beach. “Our partnership and ongoing collaboration with Opportunity International will provide access for NAWBO members to give back to women entrepreneurs in one of the poorest areas of the world.”
