With the aim to reduce the level of poverty in the Philippines, two social entrepreneurs founded PUMP-PINAS, an enterprise to provide capital as well as guidance and support to farmers and fishermen.  But, the new venture needs funding. Students learn about the causes of poverty and the concepts of inclusive growth and impact investing as they help co-founder George Ugabbam identify and secure prospective sources of financing for the startup.
