One microcredit loan is not a silver bullet that ends poverty immediately. It will, however, along with subsequent business expansion loans, help her to provide better nutrition, healthcare, housing, education and schooling to her kids, who will then be better prepared to escape poverty. Ending poverty is a generational endeavor. Sometimes, although not very often, there is an economic middle-class level attained by a first generation microloan recipient.
