    " A good and interesting summary of the micro-finance movement and the evangelical Christian "flavor" of the movement in particular. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 7/31/2012

    " A good primer on Micro finance for the American church. I found it a bit dry and not particularly gripping to read. "When Helping Hurts" was far more readable, but not as specifically about MFIs. "

    " I did not find this book to be as telling as his first book, A Billion Bootstaps. "
