Emily Hibbets

Emily Hibbets (IPED ’08) works in the Microfinance Unit of Catholic Relief Services in Burkina Faso as a CRS International Development Fellow.  She has conducted research on the needs and behaviors of the poor women clients of CRS-BF’s partnering MFI, GRAINE, for voluntary savings, and is currently studying how to adapt an agricultural loan product to the needs of agro-entrepreneurs in the context of a food price crisis.  Previously, she interned for Women’s World Banking and WWB’s Beninese associate MFI, PADME.  A graduate of Oberlin College (2002), Emily is a founding student board member of the CIPS. She hopes the CIPS will permit Fordham students to augment the study of West African remittance corridors, as well as gain a deeper understanding of microfinance in this region.
