FIELD is engaged in several efforts to support donors interested in the domestic microenterprise field:
FIELD supports the Asset Funders Network with respect to its work on microenterprise development and microfinance. AFN is an association of funders committed to sharing successful initiatives and strategies for increasing ownership of high-return assets and promoting access to the tools and supports needed to build wealth. It offers a broad roster of learning events connected to the full asset building continuum, and enables funders to combine forces for advocacy and policy relevant to low-wealth individuals and communities.
FIELD’s Funder Guide Series are brief publications aimed at helping donors better understand the industry and its challenges, as well as where investments could be most effective.
FIELD hosts donor-only Webinars on topics identified by members of the Microenterprise Funders Group.
FIELD partnered with the Association of Small Foundations to produce Microenterprise American Style: A Guide for Small Funders, which describes how foundations with limited staffs and resources can make strategic investments in the microenterprise field.
