The Christian Urban Development Association “is a non-governmental, non-profit, faith-based organization that empowers vulnerable communities in urban Peru to overcome cycles of poverty.  Our vision of  justice, wellbeing, and joy in the city leads us to promote physical, psychological, social, and spiritual wellbeing through projects in the areas of education, health, finance, and the environment.”

I stumbled on the CUDA site this morning.  I like the description of their work (microlending figures large) but don’t know anything about them; do you?

Is microlending a practice that could be useful in some of our North American urban settings?
