Microfinance Poem Contest Runner Up!

Authored by: Thomas Cerisola

Helps the desperate

Provides work to the needy

Creates hope and faith

Small sums of money

Are enough to make it happen

Give that needed push

The business cycle starts,

Demand emerges with might

Profits are real

Loan repayment follows

Showing creditworthiness

Success breeds success

Deprivation gone,

Children get educated

The sick meet doctors

Power and lights come,

Clean water flows in dwellings

Sanitation wins.

High repayment rates,

Money stays in the system

More people want in.

Big banks in disbelief

Skepticism alive and well

Honor debts is king

New business people

Are admired role models

The poor can see light.
