Google Tech Talks January 12, 2009 ABSTRACT As financial institutions melt down, you’ve doubtless heard a thing or two about credit–who gets it, from whom, and what it means for the global economy. There are very few bright spots in today’s economic environment, but the excellent news is that in many parts of the planet, loans of just a few hundred dollars still have the capacity to change people’s lives. Join Casey Wilson, nonprofit startup entrepreneur, to talk about her work with Wokai, the first foreign-funded microfinance organization in China. Casey will share her experiences building an organization that gives the poorest of China’s poor the financing to erect businesses that lift them from poverty.
