You Too Can Be A Banker!

Banker to the Poor, that is.

Muhammad Yunus was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006 for his work advocating lending money to entrepreneurs too poor for traditional bank loans. The Grameen Bank became a prototype for microcredit lending organizations all over the world.

Through the wonder of the Internet, you too can be a banker to the poor entrepreneurs throughout the world. Check out and MicroPlace ("Invest wisely. End Poverty.") I think this is a good thing for the world. Less poverty, more freedom, more education, less chance of being exploited.
