Recently I learned from on of our leaders that a group of our loan recipients had within their midst a young pregnant mom who was experiencing some complications with her pregnancy. For a while she had to abandon her small micro business. These women came along side this mom and took turns watching her business so that it would not go under. The women had seen what was being done for them through the loans and training and began to model what they had seen. This was so encouraging for us because we are not only seeing women become more responsible for themselves but also for others.

I have spent the greater part of my 25 years of vocation as a small business entrepreneur. The last 15 years have been spent as well as consultant for the C&MA and most recently as the International Director of a micro-finance charity I founded in Latin America. My experiences include surviving a plane crash in the jungles of Papua to being lost in the rain forest of Ecuador. My work has demanded my travel and involvement in a number of cultures and countries and I would describe my present situation as that of a third-culture-executive.
