Philanthropy in Africa Series: Village Banking

From my inbox: FINCA International, an organization that provides the world's poorest entrepreneurs with low-interest loans, is looking for 500,000 caring people to give to its $2 a Day Campaign. If successful, this campaign will make microfinance loans available to 20,000 hard working individuals in a number of countries like Malawi, Uganda, and Haiti.

These loans will allow impoverished men and women to start new businesses, send their children to school, and work their way out of extreme poverty forever.

$2 sounds like so little, but it can do a lot to combat global poverty. You can learn more about the $2 Day Campaign by visiting this website.
