Who is your target audience?
Your audience will consist of microfinance experts, researchers, practitioners, enthusiasts and students (high school, college and graduate students). The goal of the MoMF Blog is to stimulate current and prospective members of the microfinance community to critically examine their motivations and methods in the microfinance space, while simultaneously directing them towards effective ways to engage in more client-centered approaches to microfinance.

The MoMF is first and foremost and educational initiative. We are looking for guest bloggers to take on the role of educators. We are looking for blogs that are engaging and informative. We are also looking for blogs that are accessible to visitors interested in microfinance and concerned about issues surrounding poverty. A couple suggestions:
- Have an engaging title
- Include a picture we can use as a featured image
- Append a brief biography at the end of your blog.
