ViewChange Video of the Week: Beyond a Dollar a Day

The following video is one in a series from ViewChange, a multimedia organization managed by LinkTV and founded with support by the Gates Foundation, that is producing and procuring educational and inspiring videos from across the developing world. NextBillion is partnering with ViewChange to share these stories of enterpreneurship against the odds with the NextBillion community.

Pro Mujer, a development organization working with women in Latin America, started out focusing on training. But it discovered that education only goes so far, and began issuing microloans so that women could start their own businesses and improve not only their lives but also the lives of their families. NextBillion has profiled Pro Mujer in the past, including posts and news items, which can be found here and here.

Directed by Mark Galloway.

Originally featured in the ViewChange Online Film Contest.
