UpZones #38: Seena Mortazavi | Cascadia Underground
Ian welcomes good friend and local CEO Seena Mortazavi to the bookshop and the two discuss growing up in the Middle East (with a stint bravely roller-blading the wild hills of Vancouver, Canada) and living in Bangladesh and Tajikistan; Seena explains for UpZones' listeners what microfinance is, exactly, and how it enables those at the very bottom of the economic ladder to participate in "the lubricant of the economy" -- credit, which is as much a community endeavor as a capitalistic one. Staying on theme, Seena describes his company Chronus, a mentoring software company endeavoring to make money while doing good for the community.
