About 30,000 small-scale farming households, in Zambia, many headed by women, will benefit from a US$20 million loan to the country from the International Fund for Agricultural DevelopmentThat's pretty nice of us isn't it? But I guess it's ok, since we aren't in debt, emerging from a major recession, fighting any wars, or currently involved in some sort of massive disaster relief project. We have plenty of spare cash to loan out to anyone who asks for it.
