Background: Mohammed Yunus is the founder of the concept of microfinancing. His initial impetus to provide financing to individual small family owned businesses in India and elsewhere inspired a movement that has spread across the world with some controversy as to the real benefits of such financing. See the founder’s website for some background on microfinancing.

Choose either Angola or Ghana to evaluate the organization’s current process addressing the following concerns:

-Only 225 applications were received from prospects concerning each of the two countries. At the 2-year mark, the expectation was 1200 applications for each.
-The application processing time is taking 4–6 months. The original goal was 2 months.
-Only 100 applications have been approved for each country, and the average loan is $10,000.
-The most recent report shows that only 15% of the businesses funded are still in operation.
