17. Dune Is a Four-Letter Word (Large Print 16pt) - Griselda Sprigg, Rod MacLean

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Dune is a four - letter word', said Griselda Sprigg on the first day of her family's attempt to make the first motorised crossing of the forbidding Simpson Desert. 'And so is bloody spinifex.'
Dune is a Four - letter Word tells the story of Griselda and Reg Sprigg's pioneering desert adventures - not only in the Simpson Desert but all over the vast Australian outback. Griselda's story is also the story of Arkaroola Sanctuary, how she, with her husband, Reg, turned a drought - stricken sheep station into the magnificent flora and fauna reserve and tourist mecca it is today.
The late Rod Maclean was an author, journalist and television reporter and the late Griselda Sprigg was the first white woman to cross the Simpson Desert.
'I came to realise that Griselda Sprigg is a great Australian. Now, in the pages of this book, readers the wide world over can make the same discovery.' - Dick Smith

18. Confessions of a Microfinance Heretic (Large Print 16pt) - Hugh Sinclair

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £21.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Offering inspiring success stories, the microfinance industry depends on the faith of investors that small loans can transform the lives of the poor. But as Hugh Sinclair points out, very little solid evidence exists that microloans make a dent in long - term poverty. Evidence does exist for negligence, corruption, and methods that border on extortion. Part expose, part memoir, and part financial detective story, this is the account of a one - time true believer whose decade in the industry turned him into a heretic.
Sinclair worked with several microfinance institutions and funds as he traveled from Mexico to Mongolia, with Nigeria, Holland, and Mozambique in between. He couldn't help but notice that even with a booming 70 billion dollar industry on their side, the poor didn't seem any better off in practice. Exorbitant interest rates led borrowers into never - ending debt spirals, and aggressive collection practices resulted in cases of forced prostitution, child labor, suicide, and nationwide revolts against the microfinance community.
With characteristic intelligence and biting wit, Sinclair weaves a shocking tale of a system increasingly focused on maximizing profits. The situation worsened when large banks, attracted by the high repayment rates of overpriced loans, hijacked the sector and created a microfinance bubble. Sinclair details his discovery of several scandals, one of the most disturbing involving a large African microfinance institution of questionable legality that charged interest rates in excess of 100 percent per year, and whose investors and supporters included some of the most celebrated leaders of the microfinance sector. Sinclair's objections were first met with silence, then threats, attempted bribery, and a court case, and eventually led him to become a principle whistleblower in a sector that had lost its soul.
Microfinance can work - Sinclair describes moving experiences with several ethical and effective organizations and analyzes what made them different. But without the fundamental reforms that Sinclair recommends here, microfinance will remain an ''investment opportunity'' that will leave the poor with hollow promises and empty pockets.
