What does everyone think of the recent improvement of the West Bank economy? How does this connect with the peace process, if at all?
I encourage everyone, regardless of their belief about "economic peace" to learn about the impact of microfinance in the West Bank. By providing deserving Palestinian entrepreneurs small loans to start or improve their micro-business, the entrepreneurs are able to sustain themselves and provide for their families. Through microfinance, there can be a sense of sustainability in the region and therefore less reliance on outside aid.
LendforPeace.org is a website which enables people from all around the world to make loans to specific micro-entrepreneurs in the West Bank. Please check it out! www.lendforpeace.org
