| Lana Lovasic - Lana is a recent graduate of the innovative IOMBA program in Geneva, Switzerland, which focuses traditional MBA skills on Corporate Social Responsibility, Social Entrepreneurship and International Development. As a part of the IOMBA program`s 3 month internship requirement, Lana created a post with The Townships Project last July, working in Groblersdal in rural South Africa and living in Motetema township. There she worked with Ruth Moifo of Tsoga Microfinance Services to improve day to day reporting systems and processes. Lana saw the unique challenges that microfinance faces in South Africa and became very interested in how these challenges could be overcome. As a result, she is heading back to South Africa in December 2009 to work in Asset Based Community Driven Development (ABCD). ABCD focuses on bridging the poverty gap in South Africa through a coordinated strategy of community and business development in conjunction with microfinance, all driven by the communities themselves.
Lana was born in Zagreb, Croatia and has travelled extensively. She has lived in Canada, Croatia, Japan, Switzerland and now South Africa. She has also studied various martial arts since age 11 and holds black belts in Shotokan Karate, Iaido and Jodo.
