Microfinance 2.0

I generally dislike 'Web 2.0' or 'Microfinance 2.0' kind of titles.

An interesting account from Alex Counts of Grameen Foundation. The title talks of "New Tools, New Goals and New Ways to Lift People out of Poverty", and the article says
In fact, Counts, whose non-profit Washington, D.C.-based group supports the Grameen Bank, outlined what could be called Microfinance 2.0 -- a new generation of more accurate tools that can be used to overhaul the loan making system and apply the infrastructure of microfinance to other social woes.
but unfortunately, there is nothing in the report about the "tools" or "goals" or "ways".
