Thanks for doing that Adrian - really good businesses to support.

Too be honest, I find it very difficult to choose these days, everyone of them makes me upset, so I decided to stick to craft and ag based loans and rotate through countries - these are our first ( I think) in Tajikistan and Guatemala
