Borrowing small amounts of money can make a big difference in overcoming poverty. Through the Rotary Foundation’s Global Grant program, inspired Rotarians reach new borrowers who have no other source of capital. Micro Credit is an effective and sustainable poverty intervention program, helping people help themselves provide support for their families and their future. Micro Credit grants are in action right next door in Sonora, and fellow Rotarian Daniel Stringfellow has been to Hermosillo, Nogales and other locations to make sure Micro Credit works.
Daniel was born in Mexico and has lived in Latin America for nearly half of his life as a kid and while working there. He grew up bi-lingual and has parlayed that into a successful career.
Daniel worked as a management accountant and auditor for over 40 years. He is a Certified Management Accountant and a Certified Internal Auditor.
He has lived and worked in many countries (Bolivia, Nicaragua, Chile, Mexico, Costa Rica and China) and areas of the United States (Tennessee, Missouri and Nevada). He has spent his career almost exclusively with international companies mining for both precious metal and non-ferrous metals.
Dan started his Rotary life in 1989 in Elko, Nevada, with the Ruby Mountain Sunrise Club. He has been a member of La Condes Club in Santiago, Chile, the RC of Puntarenas, Costa Rica, and Managua RC in Managua, Nicaragua. And he was President of Tucson Sunrise 2007-2008. He is one of The Rotary Foundation’s two active Cadre members in Arizona, along with Phil Silvers.
