Title: The International Bank of Bob: Connecting Our Worlds One $25 Kiva Loan at a Time
Author: Bob Harris
The television personality and regular contestant on Jeopardy! explains how he was compelled to use his good fortune to help the world’s working poor, describing the founding of his Kiva.org microloan portal and his visits to world regions where his organization’s loans have enabled people and small businesses to revitalize.
After making hundreds of microloans online, Bob wanted to see the results first-hand, and in The International Bank of Bob he travels from Peru and Bosnia to Rwanda and Cambodia, introducing us to some of the most inspiring and enterprising people we’ve ever met, while illuminating day-to-day life-political and emotional-in much of the world that Americans never see. Told with humor and compassion, The International Bank of Bob brings the world to our doorstep, and makes clear that each of us can, actually, make it better.
