In this video, 22-year old Alison talks about her volunteer programme in Tanzania which is focused on Micro-finance Projects. Alison believes that micro financing is a development intiative that truly empowers the local people by teaching them how to maximise loan finance but not telling them what to do with it. Her time is spent both 'out in the field' and also in schools or colleges doing training. The time spent talking and relaxing with the Tanzanian people is the most rewarding part, Alison says.
