Jenny Inglee is a Los Angeles-based journalist and the Education Editor at TakePart.

Editor's Note: Tribewanted is bringing ecotourism to Sierra Leone, a country in the midst of healing from an 11-year civil war. Together with the local beach community of John Obey, tribe members from around the world can come to Sierra Leone to experience the peaceful, beautiful and vibrant country while helping to support sustainable development.

Step one at Tribewanted Sierra Leone was to start an ecovillage in beautiful John Obey. The building efforts are well underway, and now it's time for step two—microfinance.

In Tribewanted's episode #6, villagers talk with founders Ben Keene and Filippo Bozotti about their dreams of becoming entrepreneurs.
