Who Owns Poverty?: Book by Fundación Paraguaya Founder and CEO Martin Burt

In this interview by James Militizer of NextBillion, Martin Burt, Founder and CEO of Fundacion Paraguaya, speaks about his book and suggests we ask a different question: Who owns poverty? In it, he explores what happens when you examine poverty from the viewpoint of the real experts: poor families themselves. He also tells storys about Fundacion Paraguaya microfinance program, and how it can influence massive amounts of positive change for very little investments. As Burt puts it, this perspective “challenges everything we thought we knew about what poverty is, and what we can do about it.”
