A wonderful introduction to microcredit
20 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In light of Muhammad Yunus winning the Nobel Peace Prize and the increased attention microcredit is currently receiving, I think this film will be a great tool to educate those who are just learning about the movement of microfinance.

The film is well shot and edited, the concept of microfinance is thoroughly and logically covered, and the stories are completely inspiring.

I would only add that I think the proposed call to action of action groups, although wonderful, will not catch on in a serious way among Americans. However, since the release of this film Kiva.org has come on the scene and I think it is a mechanism that is covenient, simple, yet personal enough that it will be a more successful way of getting the average American to become involved with microlending.
