I’m going to be joining a ministry called Five Talents International on a trip to Kenya and Uganda. Five Talents is a faith-based organization that specializes in microfinance. In case you are not familiar with what that is, it is a great tool used in the fight against extreme poverty. Basically it is just like you getting a small business loan, but these microloans are for small amounts like $50 that allow people to buy tools, equipment, or livestock that will help them to generate a regular income for themselves.
