The paper is a case study of the postwar economic reconstruction activities of Development Workshop in Angola. By employing the tool of microfinance and working within the cultural context of the Ovimbundu people, Development Workshop successfully assisted in the society's rebuilding. This approach is in contrast to that of other NGOs which maintain that a minimal amount of social capital must be present to use microfinancing as a tool.
