Daniella Hawkins has just returned from attending and presenting at the Microcredit Summit in Mexico, where she bumped into ‘the father of microfinance’ himself, Professor Muhammad Yunus. Daniella was very excited to have the opportunity to speak to Professor Yunus and get his insights on loan methodology, life in general and the sights around Merida, Mexico!
