Bernie Sanders, because he is bringing the issue of income inequality to the forefront of the next presidential election and because he consistently stands up for what he believes in.

What motivates you to create social impact?

IÕm motivated to create social impact because I think itÕs important to address issues of inequality and work towards creating a society where everyone has access to the same opportunities.

Host Site Overview

Host Site Project

MAF believes in creating pathways out of the financial shadows. Every day we help house cleaners and restaurant owners across the U.S. save money with better credit and less debt. We do it because 50 million Americans are living in the shadows where predatory lenders lurk. From our signature social loans to our groundbreaking research, we are constantly innovating and advocating for effective, culturally relevant ways to improve economic mobility. We are transforming the financial services sector so that all hardworking families have a shot at achieving their dreams. MAF recently invested in two new powerful online software platforms to facilitate social lending and financial education in order to scale our work nationally. This role (one of two) will serve as a project manager for: website development, implementing SMS texting campaigns, and will manage the tech side of new product development.
