CAMEO offers Microlending Essentials (MILES), a microlending underwriting class for the CDFI and business-coaching nonprofit community several times a year. This introductory training covers multiple analyses: global cash, credit history, debt-to-income, and bank statement. Participants also underwrite and write credit memos for two actual microloan applications.


The MILES training is taught by Emily Gasner, VP of Strategic Initiatives and CDFI Incubator Director. Emily spent the last 20 years as co-founder and leader of Working Solutions, an award-winning nonprofit microlender and Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) in the San Francisco Bay Area. Emily led all aspects of social impact and investing.
