BOP Business Solutions to End Global Poverty
by Jack Sim, Founder of BOP HUB

USD 2.50 a day. There are more than seven billion people in the world today, but most goods and services are only serving three billion rich and middle-class. The other four billion earning less than USD eight a day are left outside our formal economy. Most of them earn an average of USD 2.50 a day.

While the rich and middle-class get electricity, water and sewage connections the poor tend to live Off-Grid without electricity, water and sanitation connections. The result is they have to pay a poverty penalty for everything they buy. For example, the poor buy water in jerry cans and carry them home, while the rich get it for free on taps piped to their homes.

When the poor borrow money from micro-finance institutions, they pay between 25% and 50% interest per year while the rich pay much less. Sometimes, the loan sharks charge up to 40% interest per month!!! The poor earn less and have to pay more, that's not right...

“We bring together people who are involved in running associations”

Nancy Carfrae, Coordinator, Associations Round Tables, Union of International Associations (UIA)

Your UIA Associations Round Table Europe took place three weeks ago in Dublin. Which presentation do you remember best?
For me, the discussion groups are always the most interesting. Of course, the speakers give us food for thought, with new ideas and provocative questions, but in fact everyone in the room is an expert: we are all involved in running associations. It is in the small groups that we get to share that expertise. The passion and motivation and knowledge always give me a boost...
