Hello, all! Alejandra, our New Operations Coordinator (since August 15th), has given permission for me to post here in this section of the Public Forum, to introduce two new Volunteer Staff Members to you! Please give a warm welcome to Martha and Reema, whom we recently have had the pleasure of adding to our Volunteer Staff! Martha is a professional Web/Graphic Designer for nonprofit organizations! She's very interested in microfinance and international development, and enjoys gardening, traveling, and biking. Reema was raised in India and just recently moved to the United States. She is quite interested in meaningful contributions, positive impact, and understanding the myriad roles of finance in society. She loves traveling, reading, and meeting new people. During their time working for Zidisha, Martha and Reema (and others who will be joining them soon, too!) will be responsible for monitoring the Forum on a regular basis to answer borrower and lender posts. I still will be around the Forum from time to time, just not on a regular basis anymore. (You can click on the "Information" tab on my Profile page here in the Forum to see all of the other work I've been doing and continue to do for Zidisha; I just updated that tonight... or today, for those of you for whom it's already daybreak on Friday, September 16th. ) I'm only one person, though, and I asked Alejandra if we could start recruiting others who would be interested in monitoring the Forum on a regular basis. I think (and she agrees!) that it's really important that more of the Volunteer Staff be visible in the Public Forum for you, not just one person most of the time (as @Bayle C was before, and as I have been since soon after Bayle's departure). There are many other people working here and you really should get to know them, too! And they, you!! Again, please give a warm welcome to Martha and Reema! Thank you, Martha & Reema, for your help!
