Understanding microcredit lending has been one of my BIGGEST challenges so far. In many occasions Gisella and I thought we were almost finished, but then we realize that we were still missing supporting information and we had to start over. Even though this was frustrating at first in the end we didn't regret fixing all these things. We had worked so hard on making this documentary that it was pointless to create a video that had biased information and that we were't proud of.
HOW EFFECTIVE IS MICROCREDIT LENDING
There are several perspectives and arguments that can be made about this topic and none are 100% right. When we did the script for the third time we were always finding new supporting information, but we also found other things that backfired our evidence. We were STRESSED. Once again we though we had to repeat the script, however, we then realized that we had to create our own conclusion based on what we learned and our experience. This didn't meant that OUR conclusion was the final answer or thought, NO. Instead it was the opposite, we decided to understand and review all the information and evidence we collected and to formulate our own conclusion. However, this might change in the future as new things happen in the microcredit sector in Peru and further research is released. For us it was important to evaluate all the perspectives we faced and make our own point about how effective is microcredit lending in Peru.
In our POL we have brought all this sweat, tears, stress and excitement together and have reflected about the process on creating this amazing documentary which we are extremely proud off and how this topic has multiple sides and a volatile conclusion. Even though, we aren't completely finished editing we are extremely happy with this new third script we've created. We believe it exemplifies everything we have learned in a more transparent way with evidence that supports out thought and a good balance of anecdotes and reflections.
