Extending the Link (ETL)
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.
