Savings in Senegal: Microfinance - How do developing countries try to integrate modern approaches to finance with traditional systems? What is the financial reality for their citizens? How can microfinance be used as a grassroots movement to alleviate poverty? Sean Grossnickle, a Lumos Scholar, explores these questions as he discusses his summer in Saint Louis, Senegal working with a microfinance institution that serves the underprivileged populations of Senegal. Join us as he talks about the realities of living in a 3rd world country and how different organizations approach poverty.
