It is always the poor who are suffering the most who get the least from the resources that were intended to support them.
Droughts in north east Brazil have often been used as a political punch ball and way of diverting much needed investment. The misery of some is often seen as an opportunity to others.
In its very small way VinB’s Micro Loan Project is a way of getting much need investment to families who really need it – this sort of initiative cuts out all the middle men and the politicians – there are no hidden agendas and the ethos in which the resources are made available is one of solidarity, support and partnership.
Perhaps small really is beautiful ?
