Coming soon Fieldbook of Fazle Abed and 1 billion girls empowerment. I see these as 7 chapters of the fieldbook of Abed and womens nation building. Are you able to see if Shameran Abed agrees these are close to honoring his father's purpose or do you want me to do that?
Chapter 1 Ending poverty with financial services - Chapter 2 Ending famine with village agriculture and 100% employment of women geared to community building and celebrating nation's market/entrepreneurial advantages
Chapter 3 Raising life expectancy from 25 below to close to world norms through maximising last mile health service capacity with collaboration focus on affordable life-shaping solutions for infants and mothers
Chapter 4 Education designed to value's the (girl/boy) child's life, love of self, communal dignity of everyone as an action learner and livelihood co-creator Chapter 5 Community as (global village) platform search for collaboration in resiliency and family-led conscious effort to respect every person and nature's dynamics Chapter 6 Did Abed discover optimal framework matching The Economist's 150 year searching for Entrepreneurial Revolution ie a third movement to mediate historic empires, big politics and big corporate through intergenerational and inter-hemisphere sharing of advances in engineering. Specifically matching Von Neumann's definition of industrial revolution 3 as era of above zero-sum value exchange modeling coherent with 100 times more tech per 8 decades 1945-2025 compounding to everyone's collaborative and natural advantage. Chapter 7 Exploring Abed's checklist of the most urgent work to be done through the decade after his passing and purpose of the younger half of the world in connecting first true decade of sustainability generation through hi-trust behaviors and borderless transparency of data mapping integrating every GPS

sheikha moza, qatar's mrs stanford?

in the middle of the19th century, california governor's wife committed to love all of california's children through the launch of stanford university

qatar's first lady sheikha moza has been co-creating girls leading education city in west asia

in this endeavor the biggest leap forward may have been the creation of the wise nobels of education - in 2020 wise is 10 years old - compare its learning curve with the un at 75 where sheikha moza is one of the main sdg advocates

wise's first laureate sir fazle abed spent 50 years helping poorest women end poverty and his last 20 years inviting coalitions of new 21st century universities- in creating wise sheika moza headhunted a strategist from abed's benchmark new university in singapore -one of lee kuan yew's proudest innovations which he deputised singapore's former ambassador to the un mahbubani to lead



sheika moxa is a un sdg advocate
her qatar foundation helped be the un hub of nearly 50 educations valuing refugee education - education above all

there are similarities and differences to dubai- both emirates deploy a world class conference centre to search out what 21st c skills networks they want to build - dubai headhunts experts from arounbd the world when it see a nascent innvation sectir it wants to be in; qatar tends to ask a foreign university to set up branches in the 21stc skills it values most- in qatars case all the campuses connect -ie the conference centre, qatar foubdation and refugee education hub, wise, the coalition of international colleges - in fact one whole suburb of qatar is beoming education city- and in this part of town female decision-making sprready positive emotional intelligence

learnings on microcredit

for better or worse those who claim to operate microcredit talk about at least 6 different sorts of services


.
Loans Only

Loans & Savings..Other services critical to life and community
Community Banking only135
Community Bank, Market, Knowledge Hub
246

There are then at least 20 regional crises that those using microcredit are aiming to resolve first

Strategically microcredit can also choose to partner at least 6 other types of community sustaining sectors : energy including water food, education, media, health, technology, gov and professions

The Bangladeshi models of microcredit - led by Grameen and BRAC - proved that a complete set of services 4&6 are optimal economically ; however in Europe , laws typically forbid most organisational founders from providing savings services (unless they are affiliated to a bank for the rich which would rather defeat the point). It is the case that all three of banks, marketplaces, and knowledge hubs have a tendency for the richer to edge out the priorities of the poorer unless the organisation is anchored round the poorest .

Like the 200 delegates to the EU's summit on microcredit 2 Dec 2011, we recommend the first model anyone benchmarks serving microcredit in Western Europe is the french network . It is probably best classified as a type 2 service - loans are its main finacials service, but very one of its branches hubs knowhow geared to helping "unemployed" to become income generating. Over the years, many of the bankers at BNP Paribas have volunteered to help adie-type networks - in different countries you might look at PerMicro in Italy, MicroStart in Belgium and look also round members of the European Microfinance Network

In Eastern Europe, look round Microfinace Centre for Central and Eastern Europe. Note Poland has seized the opportunity of its 6 months chair of the EU to celebrate its successes with microcredit - which largely have helped farmers and other get capital (for almost the first time). In the old communist system income was guaranteed, what to spend it on wasn't, and most people didnt ever look for capital. So hi-trust loans in Eastern Europe are in themselves an entrepreneurial revolution! This experience is leading each next chair that wants to liberate its people to work out what types of microcredit their region can most progress - watch out for Denmark's commitment to social business expressed at the social business summit in Brussels on 18 Nov 2011 - see relevant video. At Brussels specialist microcreditsummit two weeks later a representative from the Swedish www.mikrofinancering.se confirmed that Nordica was indeed preparing to mobilise its knowledge sharing with the EU celebrations of hi-trust microcredit.

----------------------------------------
Back to the numbers of different types of microcredit

all in all that is 6*20*6=720 different types of social solutions that microcredit networkers may be linkiing into - good news if you agree with The Economist's Unacknowledged Giant that 30000 solutions will be needed http://www.normanmacrae.com/netfuture.html for microeconomics to regain trust, youth job creation and sustainability of every community- bad news if you believe in standards or seals of excellence. Segmentation 720 ways just not permit such command and control behavioural traits

Various Notes- unlike Europe's legal sclerosis at national levels , some countries have actually passed laws to give full banking service microcredit a chance- Brazil and Tunisia being interesting cases, with Kenya being a mainly positive case.

Digital cash can make much of the transaction costs of banking between 10 and 100 times less- so far only Mpesa in kenya and recently Bkash in bangladesh are testing this to benefit low income or poorest.

Virtual appeals for peer to peer loans are interesting -KIVA US, Babyloan Europe - though amazingly most developed nations have laws that blocking funding of their own youth's microentrepreneurs through such models
