Denver Nonprofit Applies Nobel-Winning Methods to Local Loans

Denver's Micro Business Development was founded with the help of, and modeled after, the work of Muhammad Yunus, an economist from Bangladesh who won the Nobel Peace Prize in October.

Many of Micro Business Development’s clients are women and minorities in Colorado, and many succeed. Dan Meyers talks to Executive Director Kersten Hostetter.
