At the moment I am not direclty involved with Grameen Italia, but I know how it is progressing. An Italian bank Unicredit and an Italian university of Bologna are behind the program. It should start soon and I am very happy about that. I am more focused on Social Business. It is the method I feel closest to in my heart to eradicate poverty, although I find microcredit an ingenious invention by Prof. Yunus. He is just a genius full-stop!! : ) I am founding a Social Business organization in Italy to raise awareness on it and create new SBs. I don't think I will be going to Kenya but currently I am working for an American university in Lugano Switzerland and hopefully some students will come. It is called Franklin College Switzerland. I am starting a student club on Social Business as the new semester begins. I will keep you posted on its development. I don't believe any Franklin student has joined MFIconnect yet but hopefully they will soon and you can get in touch with them. It would be fantastic if you could meet there...are you American or where are you from? Take care x
