Microfinance is a groundbreaking global anti-poverty strategy that began in the 1970s. Now, four decades later can we consider microcredit or microfinance the real answer to alleviating poverty?

Social entrepreneurship is about innovation and the impact you make, not always about how much you make. Would you consider the founders of Kiva.org a social entrepreneur, social innovator, or both? why or why not?
Rorty states, “By a campaign, I mean something finite, something that can be recognized to have succeeded or to have, so far, failed. Movements, by contrast, neither succeed nor fail.” Do you agree with this definition of a movement?
