2013-04-25 - Understanding Nicaragua's Struggle with Poverty

Did you know Nicaragua is the second most impoverished nation in the western hemisphere? Have you heard of micro-lending before? Did you know that we have an international micro-lending organization right here in Vermont?

Please join the us on April 25th at 7pm to learn more about the non-profit organization, People Helping People Global. PHPG has been helping people living on less than $2 a day start businesses and raise themselves out of extreme poverty since 2009.

The co-founders, Alex Tuck and Isabel Gamm, will give a talk and head a discussion about the extreme poverty in Nicaragua and how PHPG is working to eliminate it. You can learn more about the organization at http://phpgmicrolending.org.
