Our Team

Here you can get to know the people behind Global Micro Initiative. All of us work in a voluntary capacity.

As director I am responsible for organizing and supervising our partners and all our projects. I lived in the Philippines and Indonesia for a quite some time and personally know the situation on site as well as our local partner organizations. If you have any questions about our work, you are welcome to contact me.


Marion Schwierz
I am responsible for Public Relations. I have been looking for ways to become involved in social projects for some time already, but didn’t know in which way. I joined GMI because participants don’t simply receive donations but get a real chance for a better life. If you have a question about topics related to marketing or PR, please send me a message.


SilviaSilvia Schüßler
I take care of the association’s finances and supporting members. I have been doing volunteer work for years and have spent two years abroad with a relief organization as well. Additionally, I have known our partner Project Life Subic for some years already. For questions regarding finances or memberships, contact me here.



Other Team Members 

Doris Schwierz
I assist GMI with technical issues. In this way I can use my skills to support an organization where I know that the programs really reach and help the people.

Ann-Sophie Blank
I support GMI with the translation of all texts. I find the personal stories of program participants and the great success of GMI’s micro credits particularly fascinating.


Anja Reichmann
I am writing the reports about the project participants. I find the personal insights into their lives really touching and I am fascinated by the fact that people can live a more independent life through our work. The concept of GMI was really convincing and I am happy to be a part of this initiative.  


Elena Sommer
As communication designer, I advise and support GMI in all sorts of questions regarding visual appearance and brand identity. I could identify with the approach of GMI from the very beginning and especially as a self-employed I appreciate the advances of my own company and which personal growth can result from this. This is why I think micro loans are a great idea and support it with my skills.
