3/3/2008; 59 minutes

Anne Hastings, Executive Director of Fonkoze, Haiti's largest microfinance institution, has searched the globe for a solution to the problem of extreme poverty. In countries as far apart as Bangladesh and Haiti efforts to combat even the most extreme types of poverty are now proving effective at relatively little cost per family. Based on her review of experimental and innovative approaches worldwide, Hastings describes the role that microfinance, education, health care, and case management play in eradicating poverty.
