Hina Ansari

Bernard Thibault

Hina Ansari is a creative director, editor and public relations consultant, with a background in journalism and publishing. A co-founder of a Toronto-based public relations firm, she was introduced to ACCESS by staff at the Thorncliffe Neighbourhood Office, who recommended she join the chapter's Loan Review Committee. As someone with a longstanding casual interest in microcredit and social finance, Hina’s interest peaked with the opportunity.

After attending a training session with ACCESS, Hina joined the Thorncliffe Park Loan Review Committee and was involved in approving the chapter’s first loan. With her background in the media industry, being a Loan Review Committee volunteer affords her the opportunity to share some of her expertise in communications, promotions and marketing with emerging entrepreneurs who often lack these skills.

Loan Review Committees (LRCs) evaluate and approve loans, as well as providing ongoing support to loan recipients. The Thorncliffe Park LRC was formed in March 2011 and is made up of professionals, business owners and community leaders.
