Win a Copy of Zidisha’s New E-Book

Zidisha has just published the Kindle E-Book ‘Venture: A Collection of True Microfinance Stories‘. Authored by Zidisha staff and volunteers, the book is a rich and readable collection of real-life portraits of Zidisha entrepreneurs worldwide.
Venture is written for Zidisha supporters and anyone else who would like to better understand the realities faced by the poor and the aspiring middle class in the world’s least developed countries, the range of factors that affect their prospects for working their way out of poverty, and how microfinance can impact their lives. There are 34 stories of individual borrowers.

Zidisha founder Julia Kurnia told that all proceeds will go to cover Zidisha’s operating costs.

Note to other p2p lending/p2p microfinance services: Do you have interesting inside stories to tell? Have you considered distributing them in e-book format? The marketing effect could be good compared to other marketing channels. For maximum exposure you might even offer the e-book for download free of charge. If you tried this method, tell us, so we can write about your experiences.
