The Grand Rapids Community College Mathematics Department presents Adjunct Mathematics Instructor Radu Teodorescu.

Social enterprise: Using microfinance to alleviate poverty yet still post dramatic growth
Many institutions around the world are turning to microfinance both as a strategy to help lift the poor out of the poverty trap and to make a decent return on investment. While the business gains from lending money to those who earn only about one or to dollars a day may seem limited, some of the major international banks are now turning their attention to this sector.
