Description

Micro-credit has become so successful that it is being used in the United States to help low-income people help themselves. Private, nonprofit organizations are the major creators of micro-credit. Micro-Credit travels to three Latin American countries-Bolivia, Guatemala, and Colombia-and to two U.S. locations-Chicago and North Carolina-to show how these programs are working.
