Extending the LINK produced its second film in 2009. This poignant documentary is called Del Micro al Cambio, translated as 'from the small to the change.' Four CSB/SJU students traveled to central Chile to learn about the important micro-lending industry that is becoming a source of income for poor and middle class people throughout the world. The film sheds light on micro-loans, a Nobel Peace Prize winning idea, and their potential to change lives and communities by giving small loans to aspiring entrepreneurs.
Inspired action: Advocacy for micro-lending encouraged by Del micro al Cambio has led to ETL's support to Banco Esperanza, a women's micro lending organization in nearby Cold Spring, MN.
