FA Microloans is sad to announce that it has dissolved.
I would like to extend a HUGE thank you to all those that supported us all these years.
This startup nonprofit has been one of the most exciting chapters of my life. I poured all my energy into the idea of "Embedded Microcredit" and was able to see the creation of sustainable businesses in Armenia.
I had the opportunity to visit these businesses in the Summer of 2015 and I was blown away.
This experience allowed me to take what I learned in the classroom and put it to work in the real world to help people. For that I am grateful. It's been an awesome ride and I am sad to see it come to an end.
Still, I leave you with a quote from Robert F Kennedy that is most appropriate for FA Microloans conclusion.
"Let no one be discouraged by the belief there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world?s ills ? against misery and ignorance, injustice and violence. Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.
It is from the numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centres of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."
