If you'd like to give a gift to an entrepreneur this Christmas, you might like this opportunity from Gospel For Asia. It's a Christian program that I support - perhaps there are other non-sectarian ones you may prefer. Maybe KickStart.org is a place you'd like to give.
Some of the gifts are what you might expect for helping Third World entrepreneurs - livestock, for example.
I ran across a neat gift that I think most American business people would like. No, it's not a viable opportunity here today. But most of us would like a business that had
1) A one time investment
2) Provided profits monthly
What is that? It's a pay phone like the one pictured above! Â For $60 you can give one to a family and enable them to produce revenue for quite some time.
Hey, if those were still a viable opportunity here, who wouldn't like to have several churning out income every week? I sure would!
Here's how Gospel for Asia describes them:
Yes, they are still used throughout Asia. And when a poor family installs a pay phone near their home, they can reap the benefits of its profits for years. It's a way to provide extra income for the entire household.
