San Marcos, San Salvador, El Salvador - A program aimed at helping the world's poorest people with small business loans is well on its way to achieving its goal of reaching 100 million people, US-based activists said.
The small loans average around 100 dollars and are often granted to illiterate individuals. No collateral is required.
