I have a confession to make. When I got involved with Trickle Up, I knew nothing about microfinance, about microenterprise, about the difference between the two, about poverty alleviation. Basically, I knew nothing about Trickle Up. Oops. In the summer of 2009, I was looking for an “extracurricular project” because I had been at my full-time job doing fundraising and special events at a performing arts nonprofit for a couple of years. I’d gotten the hang of it, and it was time for an interesting side project. Read more...
