In the second half of this week’s show, we are excited to welcome back to the show Chris Horst of HOPE International. Chris was on earlier in 2012 and told us about an upcoming trip to Rwanda. We wanted to have him back on to share with us not only about his recent travels, but also about the tremendously important and effective work his organization is doing in the microfinance world.
