Housing Finance – Mexico

Microfinance institutions (MFIs) have commonly offered loans for socially excluded people, whether it be farming, selling products at markets or other activities. However, if the main mission behind microcredit is that of giving the tools to people to improve their own lives, then we must also accept that access to financial support for other aspects of one’s life is also much needed. For example, in recent years, MFIs began to diversify their products and many offer financie for housing. In the case of Mexico, in rural and sub-urban areas, almost fifty per cent of people live in patrimonial poverty, where households are not able to meet the basic needs of security, hygiene or comfort. Some live in shacks, others do not have access to water, sanitation or gas and many live without doors or windows that can be shut.

Drug induced nightmares

I am currently receiving a daily IV drip of antibiotics for an infected arm, following an operation. It is slightly inconvenient, makes me feel a bit nauseous and sleepy. However, without antibiotics I would probably have lost my arm. Today, UK's chief medical officer, Dame Sally Davies, has said antibiotic-resistant diseases pose an apocalyptic threat and the issue should be added to the national risk register of civil emergencies. She can see a scenario, whereby people going for a routine operation could die from infection because we have run out of antibiotics that work. The issue of drug resistance is as old as antibiotics themselves (1942) and arises when drugs knock out susceptible infections, leaving hardier, resilient strains behind.
