I could go on and on about BRAC, and what a phenomenal organization it is, but first, I want to finish this book I'm reading called "Freedom from Want" by Ian Smillie.

As I read the book, I realize that Rent-to-Own, the business I started just over 1 year ago in Zambia, has a lot of similar challenges and goals. Of course we're still small and have just $100,000 of micro-credit in action, I can see how we can quickly have 3 or $4 million in the next few years.

What the story of BRAC is making me realize, is that it'll never grow to its full potential without some help.

So for this post, I'm asking for some assistance. Rent-to-Own is expanding into new parts of the country and could offer credit to as many as 50,000 people within the next year if all goes well.

I'll get into the details of what I found cool in the book on my next post, right now I still have 100 pages of reading to do.

If you like my work, I would really really appreciate a small donation. I can't express how much it does for the small businesses and farmers that we work with.

He has a new diesel pump so he can expand his farm.

Thank you kindly.
