BRAC
May 28, 2010

I believe strongly in the BRAC model of holistic provision of services (financial, health, education) as well as their emphasis on social enterprise. I see social enterprise as offering the best opportunity to address the intractable problems affecting our people and our planet today. I believe the use of business principles (effective leveraging of resources, focus on consumer needs) combined with a social mission offers a sustainable and scaleable approach - the best of both worlds. An example I particularly like is the BRAC Village Organization project. Women who invest their loans in cows can take advantage of an 'ecosystem' of support around their business - high producing hybrid cows, education on care and maintenance of the animals, an organization to provide a market for the milk. This approach reduces risk for the new business and improves the opportunity for sustainable return.

The Great!
