Under the leadership of my friend and fellow YGL Carlos Danel Cendoya of the world renown microcredit organization Compartamas, the microcredit committee of the Forum of Young Global Leaders met in New York and participated in the recent United Nations "International Year of Microcredit" meeting. It was an incredible time all around, and well worth the time investment. Think we really made some progress on this most important area of and for empowering the poor, the wealthless and the under-served throughout the world.
A special thank you to my friend and fellow YGL Matthew Bishop, chief business writer for the Economist Magazine, for hosting YGL members and guests for this key roundtable session and then dinner following the UN meeting.
Together, we can make a difference.
Onward, with HOPE
