    How can we apply for the loans? I am an advocate for the disabled. There are a lot of disableds in this country who could use this.

    Thank you for your question, and the opportunity to make this important clarification. Grameen Foundation helps to build strong local institutions that reach even more people in the poorest communities through services and capital provided to microfinance institutions. We do not make individual loans. I encourage you to contact a microfinance program in your area. You may see a list of microfinance organizations supported by Grameen Foundation here: http://www.grameenfoundation.org/where_we_work/ to get you started.

    Best of luck

    Sirs,
    Congratulations for your memoral actions for the poors of our world. In my opinion the only way to erradicate poverty, in long term, is to control of population.
    What about if we were 1 billion instead of 6 billions and more?
    Think of it!
    Regards
    W Avila
