What if you could meet all of your consumer needs while, at the same time, getting to know your neighbors and protecting the environment?

Pocket Change explores how growing a cabbage can fight poverty, how a few dollars can help ten families start their own business, and how running errands for a neighbor can help you learn to become a bike mechanic.
