Oikocredit Western Pennsylvania Happenings 

An Introduction

Hello everyone,

My name is John Frazier. I am currently in my final semester at the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, studying political economy. Last semester, I studied in South Korea at Seoul National University. Other places I have lived include Hong Kong and Ecuador. Throughout my travels, I have seen first hand the need for micro-financing companies such as Oikocredit and am very happy to be interning throughout the fall semester. Throughout the coming months you will see more of my updates here, our Wordpress, and on our Facebook page.
