Peter Ryan is one of those individuals. Please visit:    and vote for my boss, Peter Ryan!

If you visit the above website, you will find that, Peter Ryan empowers women in rural Malawi, Namibia and Zambia to work their way out of extreme poverty through the MicroLoan Foundation (MLF). Quitting his job as manager of a French food company, Peter started MLF in 2002 with £25,000 of his own money, recognising a need for microfinance services in sub-Saharan Africa and wanting to put his business start-up experience across EMEA to better use. MLF has helped over 40,000 women start small, sustainable businesses, positively impacting more than 200,000 children. MLF provides women with small loans, typically £50 – £150, to start their businesses, providing business training, ongoing mentoring, and savings and financial planning. Independent studies show the vast majority of women who borrow from MLF can now afford healthcare and to educate their children, and no longer suffer food shortages. MLF won Highly Commended in the International Aid and Development category at the 2010 Charity Awards.
