Image:FINCA Logo.PNG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page.

FINCA's origin in Grameen Bank[edit]

Having worked for FINCA until recently I feel obliged to mention what is burningly obvious to our peers around the world. Microfinance/microcredit programmes around the world are without exception inspired and influenced by the founders of the concept Grameen Bank (of Bangladesh). I always found it embarrassing that we never made reference to Professor Muhammad Yunus the distinguished Nobel prize-winning founder of Grameen who taught us all. I hope this can be rectified. Here follows our own (FINCA) press release after Professor Yunus deservedly won the prize:

http://www.villagebanking.org/site/c.erKPI2PCIoE/b.2611153/apps/s/content.asp?ct=3711677

"“It’s exciting that the rest of the world now knows how Dr. Yunus’s idea of trusting the poor has spawned an entire movement of organizations like FINCA who provide small loans to the world’s poorest people, mostly women, to help them create their own paths out of poverty,” said Executive Director Rupert Scofield. “We couldn’t be happier that Dr. Yunus has been honored in this most prestigious way.”

FINCA Founder John Hatch, a decades-long leader in the microcredit field and father of the village banking microlending methodology, echoed Scofield’s sentiments, recalled Dr. Yunus’ service as a member of the Board of Directors of FINCA International for seven years. "

Please feel free to make the insertion/correction in the main article. Fincablog (talk) 00:38, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

I should add that 'Grameen' means 'village' in the language of Bangladesh. As we all know Grameen Bank are unequivocally the pioneers and innovators in microfinance/microcredit as we know it today - and "par exemple" its application to the rural, 'village' context. We all attend conferences and let's not beat about the bush. I am sometimes ashamed that we as a country can not recognise that smaller and of course poorer countries such as Bangladesh is can still be a place of innovation.

I agree. I came to this article trying to find the name of the Nobel Prize winner who created this movement and inspired organizations like FINCA. When I read the name John Hatch under the section Background and History I was a little upset and compelled to write something in this discussion page. To my surprise, I'm not the only one who feels this way. --Hamsterlopithecus (talk) 00:17, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Dead link[edit]

Ref. #2 (http://marriottschool.byu.edu/conferences/selfreliance/bio/hatch.cfm) is a dead link. I'm not sure what the right wikisyntax steps are to flag or correct that, but somebody else reading this probably does :-). — Preceding unsigned comment added by WBTtheFROG (talkcontribs) 17:23, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
