Supporters gathered to celebrate the opening of Grameen America’s Oakland, CA branch. In attendance were Matt Lonner, Manager of Global Partnerships and Programs, Chevron, Christine Carr, Community Development Finance Manager, Silicon Valley Bank, and Stephen A. Vogel, CEO, Grameen America.

Mr. Vogel welcomed guests and discussed the critical role strategic partnerships play in our operations. “We’re delighted to celebrate the opening of our first West Coast Grameen America branch with our Bay Area friends and supporters,” stated Mr. Vogel

Grameen America’s Oakland Branch Manager, Rashidull Alam, spoke of the demand for Grameen America’s services in the East Bay and shared examples of some of the new businesses that have been established. Our favorite—one Grameen America borrower purchased an industrial vacuum to use and rent to other house cleaners in her neighborhood.

A special thank you to Chevron for hosting the reception and for the continued support. Grameen America is grateful to our valuable stakeholders who have been instrumental in our Bay Area expansion.
