In November of 2013, the Lead Now team visits China and raises money for the Grameen Foundation. 15.9 percent of the Chinese population — or 207 million people — live in abject poverty, earning less than $1.25/day. As the Chinese Government begins to view NGOs more favorably, Grameen Foundation has stepped up to provide the necessary resources and technologies that make microfinancing accessible to those in need. Grameen Foundation's work in China ensures that microfinance institutions reach the poor and poorest and measures that these individuals are moving out of poverty.
