From Ethical Investments to Global Microfinance Networks

 - Jul 1, 2011
It's a long-time saying that money makes the world go 'round, but these finance-focused social enterprises are doing something different with money. Whether it be microlending services or ethical investment firms, this top lost focuses on the social angle to a company's day-to-day operations.

Some of the finance-focused social enterprises in this list are based in industrialized countries like the United States and London, and others, are based in (and work in) the less-industrialized world. If you're a finance fiend, this top list will hopefully get your brain tinkering away on the various enterprises, services and organizations that show that well-handled money can have impacts on social entrepreneurship, global poverty, health, culture and a variety of other social indicators.
