Ideas for a Future Podcast on Microfinance
So Lynn McMullen and I chatted today and we thought it would be neat to start planning for a series of podcast interviews of women thought leaders in microfinance. So I'd like to ask the community to submit two things:
1. Names of women who you think would like to talk about their models in microfinance
2. Questions you'd like to ask them about their models of microfinance
Here are some names and ideas:
a. Rashani Zafar from Kashf in Pakistan, http://www.kashf.org/
b. Ingrid Monroe, from Jamaii Bora, http://www.jamiibora.org/
c. Chingwell (a member of our PW community), First Step Initiative out of the Congo, http://www.firststepinitiative.org
d. Marcia Odell who works with Pact International and help found their Women's Empowerment Program (WEP) based on literacy and savings in Nepal. http://www.microcreditsummit.org/press/PACT.htm
With the women above we'll cover village banking based on savings programs to the traditional loan programs based on peer pressure.
Other ideas are welcome.
