Description

A film by Accion International which describes the role of the informal sector in Peru's economy. Since informal businesses are not registered with the government, they are not eligible for bank loans. Thus, organizations such as Progresso are now providing credit to micro-enterprises, so that their economic potential to the national economy may be realized.
