Enabling Bottom of the Pyramid (BOP) Entrepreneurs

Micro credit organizations such as KIVA are enabling access to credit. It's a good start. Education institutions (now often profit driven) need to make the access to trade education as well as other marketable skills available, possibly through micro credit. In ones own company the contributions to micro credit organizations could be matched. Such a great task requires many innovative solutions. Consider the industrial revolution, how where skills developed to meet the needs?
