When Jessica Jackley first visited Uganda she was a recently graduated philosophy major who didn't know the difference between profit and revenue. She did know that the goatherds, seamstresses and farmers she met didn't want her pity, though they did want small loans to start their businesses. Jackley went on to co-found Kiva, a San Francisco-based microlending platform that connects lenders with small business entrepreneurs around the world. In her new book, "Clay Water Brick," Jackley profiles some of the entrepreneurs who have inspired her with their ability to "do the most with the least."
