Photos: Best of Sri Lanka work for UMCOR

These are some of my favorite photos from a collection of nearly five hundred, taken in March 2013 in North Eastern Sri Lanka on assignment for UMCOR.  I visited village groups, mostly with women members, who saved together in micro-finance and small savings programs, and visited the farming, animal husbandry, businesses, fishing, and other projects they had been able to finance with loans from the micro-finance groups.  The people were happy, beautiful and friendly – it was a lovely visit, and yielded some magnificent photography.
