Poverty in marginalized communities is #Solvable

Malcolm Gladwell talks to Saumya Roy about using micro-financing to eliminate poverty amongst marginalized groups.

Saumya Roy created the Vandana Foundation, a non-profit that supports livelihoods of female micro-entrepreneurs in Mumbai and rural India. She has since worked to document the lives of a group of rag pickers from Mumbai’s garbage mountain, working to chronicle the afterlife of trash and hoping to provoke new thinking and discussion on the ideals of conscious consumption.
