This is big stuff. I’ve been working with Ladders of Abundance for the past several months. They are dedicated to supporting microfinance in developing nations – which helps individuals as well as entire societies move out of poverty and into self-sustaining economic success. Few things give me much hope lately – but the power of microfinance – small loans to entrepreneurs all over the world – many of them women – really brings me to realize how we can all make an impact even with a few dollars. This hooks into hunger, poverty, disease, war, economics – the whole shebang.
