  1. This was more inspirational that I expected it to be. While Sam’s vision of “microfinance for redemption” is admirable, I’m personally a little confused about the ethical legitimacy of promoting the investor’s perspective in microfinance. There is a chance that traditional economics will push microfinance away from the social realm, but does the microfinance philosophy not have the ability to balance both dimensions (social and financial)? Provided the clients are fleeced with high interest rates, is it not okay to make a profit (through efficiencies)?
