The Social Entrepreneurs of Grinnell (SEG) is a microfinance organization made up of students and community members from the town of Grinnell, Iowa, USA. Originally conceived as a Grinnell College student group raising money for entrepreneurs in developing countries, SEG now implements microloans in communities around the world and provides microfinancing services to the local Grinnell community. Our Mission: The Social Entrepreneurs of Grinnell (SEG) seek to foster mutually empowering connections between the developed and developing world, and between our organization and members of our community. SEG works to give agency to individuals in order to sustainably address the self-perpetuating social and economic problems of inequality. SEG makes a difference around the world and also uses microfinance to help alleviate poverty and provide entrepreneurial assistance right here in Grinnell. From humble beginnings as a group of college students collecting quarters and nickels from friends to a federal nonprofit with over $50,000 loaned, we will continue to seek innovative ways of thinking and implementing finance in our community.
