Microenterprise Programs and Their Impact on JVS and the Community

By Richard D. Rotberg

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), Summer 2007

The author describes the microlending program initiated in 2001 by the Chicago Jewish Vocational Service. The program had a much greater impact on the agency, board, and community than was originally expected, the author explains. It led to the development of new agency programs, a much higher level of board involvement, and more than 150 full and part-time jobs in the businesses that received loans through the program.
