Microfinance--- Time to Give Back

  1. I posted this on the surf report,but believe its important to share with the larger ET community:

    since the giving holidays are upon us, just wanted to share an organization that is doing tremendously positive things in the lives of people all over the world. microfinance is the impetus to change lives in an exceedingly positive manner without the feeling of giving a handout to a lazy sod. just $100.00 can enable someone to launch/maintain an enterprise which may lead to better lives for entire families/groups. i see person to person microfinance as being an incredible opportunity to actually elicit positive change. this is my giving back project of choice for 2007:

    Thats a great site. I love that you see and decided where your money is going.

    It is amazing to see how much such little money can help. Some are lookign for loans that are less than what traders here pay in commisions in a day!!!

    I know I will loan more than I give my clearing firm every day!!!
