The Queen was Her Majesty Queen Sofia of Spain, the stern, quiet supporter of microfinance who invited us to… Continue

The Myth of Microfinance: What I've learned so far in the field

From my blog, Wall Street Refugee at

A little more than a month ago, I officially resigned from J.P. Morgan to pursue my personal interest in microfinance.
