I am glad to hear that you do help people and anials(zerbie) in any you can. It is not important how or how many, it is important that you do and if this thread can point someone to help, then its all the better. You truely live your faith by helping.
Have you heard of Muhammad Yunas,
He is a noble prize winner that created a micro credit firm call the Grameen Bank. I give small loans to low income families so they can start small bussiness.
This started in Bangledesh, Targeting mostly Women, in the beginning there was about 1 million people that had signed on, and now the are over 7,000,000, and 10% of the country has risen above the poverty line.
Here is an article that I have found on this project that he started.
There has been a program started in arkansas that is base on the micro credit system, an others are popping up in many other under developed countrys.
I wish I could start one of these Micro Credit Banks in India, Bangledesh is right next door, so to speak, I think I may want to try going to the finaical feild, just enough to get a programm like this started. We'll See.
