Microcredit Africa Works





In Africa many people live on less than a dollar a day. Microcredit makes it possible for poor people to obtain small loans to build a better future. Visit Africa Works for great stories about Africans making great change.

Design:
I love the use of distressed type and rustic icons. It add to the flavor of what Africa but with an American color palette. These icons remind me of an American farm. Inflecting the American ideal of ..."the pursuit of happiness". A huge trend we are seeing in America is us looking out side of ourselves and into the rest of the world. America is still the land of freedom and still a nation others look to for help.

These Africans just need a helping hand to get started.... we all need a little encouragement and belief from others that we can succeed.
