What happens when we scream for help and no one responds for 20 years?  Returning from Bangladesh, Sylvia Global meets with Deborah Lindholm, Founder/CEO of the Foundation for Women (FFW). The typical FFW microcredit participant is a woman with more than three children, likely living at or below the poverty level and sharing a small house with one or two other families. She may be in Liberia or San Diego, an immigrant, refugee or survivor of domestic abuse with limited education.

FFW microcredit loans enable her to make anad sell items, buy and resell goods and build businesses - employing all her skills and talents to earn money to support her family. She's eventually able to feed, clothe and send her children to school.
