This is really cool! I am actually about to leave on a trip with an organization called Five Talents International (www.fivetalents.org) on a 'Business as Mission' trip to provide similar business training to people through their microfinance programs. I'll be in Kenya for a week and then in Uganda for a week. These are great opportunities!
