TED Talks: Invest in Africa's Own Solutions

Throughout the semester, Texas Global Business Brigades have been training my fellow brigaders and I about micro-finance as a way to help global poverty as well as about African culture.

During one of the sessions, we were introduced to Micro-finance through a Ted Talk by Jacqueline Novogratz, a philanthropist who has done micro-finance work in Africa and around the world. The video is about 12 minutes long, but I think it does an excellent job highlighting the importance of micro-finance work in underdeveloped countries and illustrates what my relatively short time abroad hopes to accomplish.
