Most of us know how much our mothers do, and have always done, for us. We know how important they are, and how we rely on them for support, no matter if we are young or old, rich or poor. Our mothers would sacrifice everything so that we are safe and happy – I think this is a universal trait of mothers all throughout the world. And for one day each year, we officially honor them for being, in many ways, the most important woman in our lives.
EVANSTON, Ill. – Entrepreneurs and microfinance institutions in developing countries will benefit from a new strategic partnership between the Rotary Foundation of Rotary International, a global humanitarian service organization, and Oikocredit, a Netherlands-based cooperative financial institution that promotes socially responsible investing.
