Beating Poverty or Boosting Profits? – Microfinancing in Sierra Leone

Fund recipient Cian Kearns travelled to Sierra Leone to examine firsthand what micro-financing means to the people of the region. His radio documentary was broadcast on Limerick’s Live 95FM in May 2016. He also produced a radio documentary for Clare FM on the impact of the Ebola crisis on Sierra Leone’s citizens (listen back here) and an article for the Irish Times of the same theme (read here).
