Hi, My name is Anelda. I started this blog to document my internship experience working in microfinance back in the summer of 2010 and other bits I found interesting at the time. I am currently doing an MSc in Economic Development and Policy Analysis at the University of Nottingham.
Other things I blog about:
- International Development
- Social Enterprise
- Development Economics
- Rural Development
More about me... I am a South African living in the UK. I love all things development but my main interest lies in social and economic empowerment through education and informal and rural credit markets.
I don't believe in painting pictures of poor and destitute Africans as a way of alerting the world to their plight. I believe this does nothing more than tell the world that Africa will forever be on its knees. For me Africa is a continent awakening and bursting at the seams with opportunity. The real challenge lies in making sure we have enough bright and honest future leaders to lead the way.
