More on microcredit

In response to my earlier blog post on microcredit, I received an email from the Grameen Foundation USA. They are a foundation based here in the US, affiliated with Grameen Bank, a leader in microcredit financing. In addition to providing microcredit loans, they have an innovative program to use technology to make microcredit more efficient, bring more income opportunities to people, and provide people with more information. They accept donations online, so if economic justice initiatives are on your charitable donations list (that is on your charitable donation list, right? ;) they make it easy to donate too.
