Season 2, Episode 2 of Essential Work: Exploring the Past, Present, and Future of Jobs, brought to you by the Battle of Homestead Foundation.
Nathan Ruggles hosts our feature interview with the co-founders of ASA Social Fund for Hidden Peoples: Dr. Louis Picard and Pauline Greenlick. They discuss microloans, and how they provide financial resources and support to qualified individuals and groups -- particularly to vulnerable and fragile children and adults beset by strife, disability, or trauma in Uganda -- helping them build sustainable, successful business enterprises. We take a look through our unique lens of past, present, and future: getting the all-important background to their organization, hearing the stories of the microloan recipients, along with discussing what lies beyond the impact of the pandemic.
