Vince Vetro founder of The Lending Journey shares over 25 years of missionary and microfinance experiences as an author and speaker

Sharing Our Experiences

We enjoy sharing how God has worked in us and  we have been asked on many occasions to speak to varying groups  sharing our experiences and how these experiences, tragic, challenging and rewarding have shaped our lives.

Our founder Vince Vetro has also written a book about his life and his experiences in micro-finance.

Speaking Opportunities

Since 1998 Vince Vetro has had opportunities to speak about his life of adventure, whether it has been to a group of 10-year-olds at a grade school or to a group of Bay Street businessmen.

His passion to make a difference in this world comes through powerfully as he tells his story about his journeys across the globe.

His casual storytelling takes people on an incredible journey. It begins with a wild and wacky childhood, growing up in a home with close to 30 siblings, and continues with adventures that have seen him lost in the Amazon Rainforest, come face to face with AK-47s in Ukraine, and surviving a near-fatal plane crash in the jungles of Indonesia.

Each story carries with it a strong message. To the young, it speaks of the power of perseverance and the need to be a world-changer.  To a business audience, it is the story of one man’s journey from success to significance. To all, it is a story about engaging life to its fullest.

Vince’s story is still fairly unknown to the world at large, although not to his friends overseas. His board and trusted friends have asked him to slow down his travel time overseas and take some time over the next few years to share his story with more people in his home country of Canada.

If you are looking for a motivational and passionate speaker then you need to hear this man speak!
