Though I saw the news item awarding a Nobel Peace Prize to "Bangladesh Bankers," I didn’t bother to get to the story behind the story. Though I once spent a few hours in Dhaka, Bangladesh, on a layover between Paris and Bangkok, it just didn’t spark that much interest.
That’s too bad, because it’s a good story. And, nevermind, because John Venlet, a mortgage broker, has the goods. Warms my heart, all over, and makes up a bit for a few of my last enraged posts.

I saw this story in the news and thought of blogging on it but got sidetracked and didn't. I'm glad you posted on it. Non-governmental programs like this need the recognition they deserve. Good posting! Thanks –
Glad you point out microfinance programs. I did. It is good for the world.
