Transcript of MICRO-FINANCE!!!!!!!

My Person Life in Lebanon Why I chose Imad. Christian Perspective Micro-finance There are three horizontal bands consisting of red (top), white (middle, double width), and red (bottom) with a green cedar tree centered in the white band; the red bands symbolize blood shed for liberation, the white band means peace, the snow of the mountains, and purity; the green cedar tree is the symbol of Lebanon and represents eternity, steadiness, happiness, and prosperity. Factors that Impact the Economy Where is Lebanon? Jenna Eelkema
06/05/2013 My Person Micro-finance is a way we can
send money to those who don't
have as much money as we do.
People that are poor can't support
their family, maybe even not them
self, so we need to help those people
in need so that they can help their
family and them self. My person is Imad. He lives in Lebanon. His family is very poor, so he started his own coffee shop. He wants $1 500.00. He has been on Kiva for 57 months. (4 years 9 months) He will spend his money on renovating his coffee shop. He has dreams that he will have his own family. Farmers have trouble because Lebanon’s soil is being eroded away, the trees are being cut down and Lebanon is turning into a desert. The people’s health is slowly deteriorating because of all the air pollution from the vehicles and the factory waste. Lebanon’s water supplies and fishermen need help because of the oil spills that pollute the water. Populations Impact to Lebanon Industries and Natural Resources History I chose Imad because when I first saw his account, he only had 0% completed. He is going to spend his money on renovate his coffee shop to attract more customers and make more money. Imad has already reseaved all the money he needed. I really hoped that if I had funded Imad I could have helped him maybe by another coffee maker. Population Impact Lebanon The population in Lebanon is 4,131,583. The land area is 10,400 sq km. So this means that it is very packed in Lebanon. Lebanon is one of the smallest countries in the world! Lebanon's Flag Now let's Enjoy some Maneesh!!!!!!! Maneesh is a Lebanese pizza. Lebanon’s recent history starts with a civil war in 1975-1990 that damaged the economy. Following the war, Lebanon was able to rebuild its physical damages. There was another war in 2006. There was a collapse of the government in 2011. In the future the financial problems of Lebanon will see if the government will invest in things such as water which will help the people. Example of Lebanon’s natural resources are limestone, iron ore, salt and arable land. Some of Lebanon’s industries are banking, wine, jewelry and cement. Lebanon has few industries, that with the giant population it must be extremely hard to find a job that will pay you well.
We should always be thankful for what we have instead of what we want. God has blessed Lebanon because of the beautiful landscapes and interesting people. Thank-you for Watching my
Prezi Sticker Idea By: Ruby Harrison Hebrews 12:28
Do you see what we’ve got?
An unshakable kingdom!
And do you see how
thankful we must be?
Not only thankful,
but brimming with
worship, deeply reverent
before God.
