Every day, teachers encourage us to make classes more enjoyable and practical. This way, students better understand the concepts that make up the assignment and learn to interact with the real world around them. The challenges that we confront in the classroom include how to deliver knowledge to students, and how to give them a very real view of basic economic concepts.
In addition, the students are conscious of the growing problems that people have today in obtaining financing — especially in countries that, like Spain, find themselves in a complex economic crisis. They have also heard talk that in developing countries and places where access to credit is difficult, there is something called “microcredit.” The details about what this is, how it functions, and how companies dedicated to it carry out their activities, are all things the students don’t know much about.
