It’s hard to say goodbye

It is a beautiful, warm morning in  Santo Domingo where I meet Don Leo, my taxi driver, who was taking me to the airport. It has been a great week learning about microfinance in practice and meeting many special people. And I do not only refer to the MFI clients and CONACADO farmers, but each participant in the study tour.

We had interesting discussions about microeconomics, development, the similarities and differences between MFI clients and farmers in the USA and Canada and in the Dominican Republic as well as the impact of microfinance.  I learnt from them and from each person I met during the past week.

Now it’s time to officially close the study tour 2014 to the Dominican Republic and say farewell to everybody who made it a wonderful experience.
