It's been a couple of days since I have posted a video. I can honestly say it has been CRAZY - crazy good, crazy bad, crazy scarey, crazy emotional. We went to the Wli waterfalls,which were awe inspiring. Unfortunately Fintan, my fellow coach from Ireland fell on the rocks and cut his hand really bad. We had to take him to emergency....hmmmm.
That was pretty much all of yesterday - though the cool thing was our waterfalls guide, Alfred, was very interested in learning more about the credit union. He is a farmer and a tour guide. He wants to save for his daughter's education and borrow to help finish building his house out of the cement blocks he had made. His current house was made of clay. We said we would come back and speak to his village about the credit union in the hopes they would build a savings group. I will post tomorrow the pics and videos we have from our visit to Alfred's village today. While we were there we met with some of the village people and spoke to them and took questions about the credit union. Then Alfred took us on a tour of his palm nut, rice, pineapple and casova farm - WOW.
Until then here is the video from the past two days!http://www.youtube.com
