Pope Francis, in his message for the 50th World Communications' Day (2016), emphasized the importance of the internet. Accordingly he said, “The internet can help us to be better citizens and can be used wisely to build a society which is healthy and open to sharing.” Being on the internet is not only putting the SEDP on the map of the world wide web but also it opens and offers itself to the many possibilities the internet may bring both to the SEDP and partners, and to its members and stake holders. We envisioned a “dynamic and pro-active development institution committed to the total advancement of the entrepreneurial poor,” and being on the internet easily connects us to our clientele, and similarly, our clientele to us thereby bridging the gap between information and services.
