Geoff Davis Podcasting on 94.9 KUOW

You can listen to a recent interview with Geoff Davis, President and CEO of Unitus, on Seattle's 94.9 KUOW:

Here is the intro to the interview:

Global poverty is too large of a problem to be solved by any one solution. But several global economists think that microcredit might be a big first step. The idea is to make small loans, usually about a hundred dollars, available to impoverished people who can use the money to start a small business or improve an existing business. A hundred dollars can go a long way in some developing countries toward allowing people a chance to grow their business, reinvest in it, and achieve at least a minimum of financial stability.
