I found this article while researching the need for microloans in developing countries. I had studied the Grameen Bank Programs in India and was intrigued that its majority were businesswomen. So, while doing extensive research I came across a JSTOR entry on microfinance in China. I believe this artifact is valid because it contains pertinent information for those interested in keeping business ties around the world. If we ever wish to alleviate or even eradicate poverty, we must invest.
