MicroCredit and the Developing world

The developing world is truly turning around. Finally finding something that I thought of when I was 17. I developed the idea of micro funds, allowing those with little cash, little demand, to get funds and invest it intelligently into their community. Cut off extraneous trading sources and trap the money into the minimal economy, only allowing them to expand once they reach sufficient magnitude and the entire community is well cared for.

All humans deserve a chance to live. Even though it's believed that this world WAS only developed to support 500 million humans, I think technology can change anything.
