africa leaders quests JB round trips

microfranchises correspondence welcome - chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk From Entrepreneurial Revolution's search for microfranchises  started in The Economist in 1972:

Born in 1999, Jamii Bora was inspired by the
Bangla Microbanks- Grameen and BRAC - the pro-youth economics significance of which can systematically be audited to the extent that they turn value chains bottom-up. Jamii Bora benefited from perfect timing becoming the first microbank to fully automate transactions through mobile connectivity. This has helped Kenya become one of the world's top 2 ILABS- partnership networks in generating microfranchises which mobilse open technology's opportunities to end poverty. Help us to catalogue these.

Born of the new nation of Bangladesh's extreme poverty in the 1970s, these banks lead the world of pro-youth economics through the the number of replicable microfranchises they innovate - catalogue of where to help develop this curriculum. Furthermore, since 1996 Bangladesh became the first place to attract partnerships in mobile village solutions to all the most vital needs youth and families have to be sustainable

2019-2025 the last 7 year EXP of bending curve back to sustainability?

Unless anyone tells us otherwise Kenya youth have done more than others on the continent to show how to mobilise the livelihoods economy- not all of their efforts have been sustained by elders who interfered with them - hopefully one day this will be sorted out

our biggest regret is how all real friends of ingrid munro's jamii bora slum youth have been disenfranchised - see highlights 1 2 3 4 of what they did up to 2011 

our biggest hope is that now un habotat is led by former mayor of penang - her report to start the 2020s will get the record straight regarding nairobi as one the greatest youth sustainability collaboration cities

as well as jamii bora , mpesa was born to the world ourt of nairobi- its digital idea now become thye world's largest cashless bank at brac bangladesh and in 2018 bkash has become jack ma's firts major partbership in the region

nairobi was the start lof the open source software ushahide- this started kike a twitter with gps and helped to prevent many riots- it built the ihib now a benchmark for hubs all over the world

nairobi also hubbed to the world the green movements of wangaari maathai.. kenya was one the main countries that enabled mo ibrahim to make a fortune with cellnet that he turned into the ibrahim million dollar lautrate network for african leaders who left their nations in a good state- all over the world this borught attenetion to the billionnaire of mobile and waht they did with their fortunes

young people in kenya helped co-create more end poverty solutions out of kenya of the 2000s than almost anywhere we can think of- please update us - ihub continues as the contents benchmark hub and with ushahidi the continents main open source software

mpesa provided a world class breakthrough - today it has inspired the world's largest cashless bank www.bkash.com in bangladesgh which recentky attracted a partnership with jack ma

wangaari maathis network put green networks on the map- and gave unhabitat hq in kenya something to be prepaid of - unhabitat is going through a wonderful tranfromatin - watch this space

bridges international and moringa are two world class education models

kenya hosted what was we think the only world social forum lout of africa

kenya is the origin of the pateunt capiatl network of jaqueline novigratz

but sadly jamii bora is no longer the bank owned and run for youth in slums- please report on it

we are also unclearn - need reports - on whether idm award to nanocredit is still saving the world and how the second lady's womens finance networks are moving on
