A number of non-banking finance companies have entered the rural microcredit market. Many microcredit agencies have been charging interest rates not very dissimilar to those charged by moneylenders.

One day a guy tried to rob me on the street, and I had no money. So I charged him.
Steven Wright
In football, it’s the job of the player to play, the coach to coach, the official to officiate. Each guy is charged with upholding his end, nothing more. In golf, the player, coach and official are rolled into one, and they overlap completely. Golf really is the best microcosm of life – or at least the way life should be.

Harry von Zell
All devices should just sip power and be charged like a calculator is, with a small solar cell. No power adaptors. It’s easy to put a solar cell into a device, but it’s not powerful enough to drive today’s cell phones or laptops. They need too much power to run.
Mary Lou Jepsen
Once they are charged, too many poor New Yorkers find themselves trapped by our unjust bail system. Unable to pay for bail, they languish in Rikers Island or other jails while they await trial, regardless of guilt.
Eric Schneiderman
The difference between me and, say, the opera critic is that I’m charged with thinking about the world beyond opera. I could go see ‘Die Fledermaus’, for instance. I’ve never done any of this, by the way. I’ve never written about one opera since I’ve had this job.
Wesley Morris
I’ve been charged with misappropriation of funds or misuse of two types of funds.
Chen Shui-bian
I write about spirituality not so we get strong from within and achieve some state of nirvana and then distance ourselves from the real world. I write about it so we can feel empowered to doing the critical work that this generation of black women are charged with doing.
Susan L. Taylor
Liberation is an ever shifting horizon, a total ideology that can never fulfill its promises. It has the therapeutic quality of providing emotionally charged rituals of solidarity in hatred – it is the amphetamine of its believers.
Arianna Huffington
It’s never a good thing to see a government agency talk in secret about the need to ‘control protestors’ – especially when that agency is charged with protecting the homeland against terrorists, not nonviolent demonstrators exercising their First Amendment rights to peaceable dissent.
Michael Hastings
Corruption in Saudi Arabia is quite different from corruption in most other countries, as it is not limited to a ‘bribe’ in return for a contract, or expensive gift for the family member of a government official or prince, or use of a private jet that is charged to the government so a family can go on vacation.
Jamal Khashoggi
Foreign policy – dealing as it does with the most charged political subjects of all, the safety and dignity of the nation – will always be political terrain particularly vulnerable to distortion and demagoguery.

The office has oversight of people who do analysis and oversight of people who do operations, but it is not charged with doing either. That is an important point to make. Those functions are performed by the CIA, DIA and other agencies.
Stephen Cambone
Facebook deploys a political advertising sales team, specialized by political party and charged with convincing deep-pocketed politicians that they do have the kind of influence needed to alter the outcome of elections.
Antonio Garcia Martinez
The irony of the media and people in big cities is that they’re charged with defining the entire culture, when in reality they don’t even live in that culture. They live in such a rarified, tiny world.
Meghan Daum
Obamacare does much more than provide coverage to the previously uninsured – it improves the quality of coverage for all of us. Critical cancer and other health screenings are free. Women and people with disabilities or chronic conditions are no longer charged more – or priced out of the market altogether.
Jan Schakowsky
To cement a new friendship, especially between foreigners or persons of a different social world, a spark with which both were secretly charged must fly from person to person, and cut across the accidents of place and time.
Cornelia Otis Skinner
If, when you charged a person with his faults, you credited him with his virtues too, you would probably like everybody.
Lawrence G. Lovasik
When you’re young, you don’t have any experience – you’re charged up, but you’re out of control. And if you’re old and you’re not charged up, then all you have is memories. But if you’re charged and stimulated by what’s going on around you, and you also have experience, you know what to appreciate and what to pass by.
Neil Young
In my own constituency, the benefit cap has had the effect of social cleansing: of people receiving benefit, but the benefit is capped; therefore, they can’t meet the rent levels charged and are forced to move. It’s devastating for children, devastating for the family and very bad for the community as a whole.
Jeremy Corbyn
I think our model is sustainable. If all schools operated like Liberty and charged what we charge, there wouldn’t be a student loan problem in America.
Jerry Falwell, Jr.

When I went into film, it never occurred to me that I wouldn’t be able to do whatever I wanted to do. Maybe that was a good thing in the beginning. I had blinders on, and I charged forward.

Derren Brown
No American should be killed by a drone on American soil without first being charged with a crime, without first being found guilty of a crime by a court.
Rand Paul
Innovation tends to be quite siloed in most organizations. There is usually a group over in one corner charged with innovation rather than making it everyone’s responsibility.
Lynne Doughtie
Sweden is still a very peaceful country to live in. I think that people in Britain have created this mythology about Sweden, that it’s a perfect democratic society full of erotically charged girls.
Henning Mankell
There is an honourable tradition in British public life that those charged with authority at the top of an organisation should accept responsibility for what happens in that organisation. I am therefore writing to the prime minister today to tender my resignation as chairman of the BBC.
Gavyn Davies
The Sixth Amendment secures to persons charged with crime the right to be tried by an impartial jury reflecting a fair cross-section of the community.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Creative people are more emotionally charged, so I am a super sensitive person.

In a system where ‘innocent until proven guilty’ is the ultimate maxim, a person who is charged but not yet convicted of a minor crime should not be sent to prison merely because he or she lacks the financial ability to post bail.
Chris Sununu
There was a strange atmosphere on the set because we were filming in this large house, which was used for troubled children. You’d go in and find walls had been burnt down. The building was charged with this history and it stayed with us throughout the filming.
Beatrice Dalle
I have done everything I have ever wanted to do. I have swum with tiger sharks, been charged by lions and elephants. I have been shot three times, chased by crocodiles and, God be praised, I’ve made enough money that I can continue to do all the things I want to for as long as I am able.
Wilbur Smith
It’s exciting that you’ve got an entire season to experience 24 hours of highly dramatically charged human experience. It allows for the close inspection of minutiae in behaviour.
Xander Berkeley
I did business the same way President Lee did, and from what I read in the papers, the same way President Ma has done. But I have been charged for misuse and misappropriation. People need to learn at the most basic level that valid charges have not been brought against me.
Chen Shui-bian
When I visited the Water Institute’s Baton Rouge offices overlooking the Mississippi River, I couldn’t find a drop of the charged politics that drives so many environmental conversations in Washington.

Jose Rizal
I sometimes worry that by encouraging so many more people to try their hand at baking through ‘The Great British Bake Off,’ I’m going to find myself in court one day charged with accelerating the national epidemic of obesity! To which I will plead not guilty. A slice of Victoria sandwich is never going to harm anyone.
Paul Hollywood
I associate the metaphor of sport with war. The unrest in the former Yugoslavia, after all, started with a football match that then became charged in nationalist ways and ended in violence.
Elfriede Jelinek
It sounds terribly cynical, but the real surprise in the Philando Castile case is not that the officer was acquitted but that he was charged at all. The prosecutors in the case deserve great credit for even trying. But no one should be shocked about how it turned out.
Joy Reid
The principle that a central bank, charged with controlling inflation, should be independent from the government is unassailable. It may also be true that it’s easier for the central bank to guard its independence from political pressure when it mainly holds government securities.
Janet Yellen
I do feel I’m responsible to carrying on the music. That’s what I was charged with as a kid. When I was a little girl, I was told, ‘When we are gone’ – when you’re a kid, you never think they’ll ever be gone – ‘you have to keep the music alive, the Carter Family songs, and add your own songs.’
Carlene Carter
It’s important to understand you can’t remove the historical context of racially charged stereotypes or slurs as much as we like to pretend that we can.

It is by these, the people, that I have been clothed with the high powers which they have seen fit to confide to their Chief Executive, and been charged with the solemn responsibility under which those powers are to be exercised.
John Tyler
Let’s face it: pop music in its myriad permutations will always be sexually presumptuous, racially controversial and, frequently, politically charged.

Paul Young
The Engineer Corps is charged with all construction, including light railways and roads.
Kelly Miller
The real story of the Ground Zero mosque is that the project only became feasible because of the appalling and astonishing fecklessness of the officials who were charged with the reconstruction of the site and the neighborhood all the way back in 2001.
John Podhoretz

Adam Scott
Initially charged with assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest I was held for 36 hours, was beaten by cops and made to stand spread eagled against the cell wall for 12 hours with no food or water, until I collapsed. Everyone was strip searched on the way in.
John Blair
The entertainment industry at large has pretty much given away high definition to consumers. They haven’t really charged a premium for it on television. That makes consumers more likely to buy Blu-ray but less likely to pay a premium for it.
Michael Lynton
I love novels, and I read them more than anything, but stories cut in sharp and hard and are able to reveal things in a different way: they’re highly charged, a slightly newer form, and inherently more contemporary.
David Means
What made Guantanamo such a travesty – and what still makes it such – is that it is a system of indefinite detention whereby human beings are put in cages for years and years without ever being charged with a crime.
Glenn Greenwald
Instead of forcing everyone to buy health insurance, Congress should pass a law protecting the uninsured from being charged more than the insurance companies are for a given service.
Robert Zubrin
If you are charged with this responsibility of enhancing interrogations, or using soldiers to enhance interrogations to find Saddam, and you’re above the law for all practical purposes, you might try some unusual techniques. Now we know that, in fact, they did.
Janis Karpinski
Certain films should only be watched at 40,000 feet. Like, certain comedies and certain, uh, emotionally charged movies.
Johnny Flynn
The United States is holding hundreds of suspected terrorists in prisons at Guantanamo and elsewhere. Many are locked up indefinitely. They have not been tried or even charged with any crime.
Stephen Kinzer
The intelligence community is governed by the same legal and ethical standards as the rest of American government and society, but an operational imperative is here, too. An intelligence community charged with global responsibilities cannot be successful without diversity of thought, culture and language.
Michael Hayden
I love acting, but being an actor for hire only serves so much, and then you want to fill your well up again and be charged by something else.
Jennifer Aniston
And, quite frankly, I fully expected to be charged with murder, because they weren’t charging anybody. I did it in terms of, I felt like I was throwing down the gauntlet saying look, this is what happened. There’s a family out there that needed to know what happened.
Patty Hearst
I’ve done many rallies and it’s been super-charged, highly charged. People are very receptive.
Nawaz Sharif
We believe that governments and the organizations that are charged with keeping our communities safe have to have access to the most sophisticated, modern technology that exists.
Andy Jassy
You can be arrested and not charged. You can be arrested and have no right to counsel.

I am charged with violating pledges which I never gave; and because I execute what I believe to be the law, with usurping powers not conferred by law; and above all, with using the powers conferred upon the President by the Constitution, from corrupt motives and for unwarrantable ends.
John Tyler
When a child is born, it is immersed in an atmosphere charged with the stellar vibrations peculiar to that moment, which are stamped upon each atom of the sensitive organism by the air inhaled with the first breath.
Max Heindel
Being charged by a furious matriarch elephant certainly had hearts in mouths, as did the snarling spitting Bengal tiger that gave us a fright in India.
Steve Backshall
I learned very early on once I started boxing as a kid that if you go into the ring emotionally charged you make mistakes. It’s a mental game, it’s a chess match, you’ve got to think, you’ve got to strategise and make tactical decisions.
Chris Eubank Jr.
Mr. Trump’s election has caused a tectonic shift in advertising – just as it has in media more generally – and themes that might have once seemed innocuous or patriotic have suddenly become politically charged, controversial, and divisive.
James B. Stewart
Great literature is simply language charged with meaning to the utmost possible degree.
Ezra Pound
Back in the 1970s, Kodak tried to give $25m to a black civil rights organisation in Rochester, New York. The company’s shareholders rose up in arms: making this politically charged offering wasn’t the reason they had entrusted Kodak with their money. The donation was withdrawn.
Noreena Hertz
I have a ton of cousins on my mom’s side of the family, and we would put on shows together all the time and put on costumes, and we even charged our parents money.
Maulik Pancholy
You do not have to be convicted or even charged of a crime to be able to demonstrate that you’ve violated a personal conduct policy, and reflect poorly not only on themselves, but all of their teammates, every NFL player in the league, and everyone associated with the NFL.
Roger Goodell
Governments everywhere have ministries dedicated to women’s affairs. I know of only one with a Ministry for Women Empowerment: Indonesia. Charged with the ‘realization of gender equality and justice’ together with children’s well-being, the ministry frames gender equality as a matter of justice.
Arancha Gonzalez
‘Watchmen’ is a politically charged story, and it explores exactly what a hero is, how the world would treat them and how they would react. It was the first time I read a superhero story that explored that situation. These are very real people with very real problems.
Gerard Way
Although I do wrong, I do not the wrongs that I am charged with doing; the wrong that I do is through the frailty of human nature, like other men. No man lives without fault.
Joseph Smith, Jr.
These charges that have been made against me, that Prof. Prescott has made, has charged against me, that I denied the atonement in conversation with him, are absolutely false.
John Harvey Kellogg
I can’t claim to ‘understand’ ‘Byzantium,’ if any dance work can be ‘understood,’ but whenever I see it, I sense that it’s charged with meaning.
Robert Gottlieb
I am deeply saddened to hear that the man who murdered my brother, Michael Ensley, has been charged with murder again. I grieve for every family who has been victimized by this heinous individual. My prayers and love go out to the family of Demetra Doyle Heard during this trying time.
Niecy Nash
Last year, Congress passed a law that directs the Federal Reserve to set limits on debit card swipe fees that are reasonable and proportional to the cost of processing those transactions. Like most Americans, I had no idea that swipe fees charged to American businesses are the highest in the world.
Peter Welch
I like the monastic life… in the prayer and the praising… this has charged me with new energy, spiritual energy. This is very important for my ministry outside the monastery.
Pope Theodoros II
I write about what I know: teenage dating, overly charged sexuality, all the things that make you uncomfortable.
Bo Burnham
It’s nice to go back and look at the original version of Cyborg in the 1980s, when he was created, and seeing how politically and socially charged they were: it was no holds barred. If DC ever made a return to that social awareness and that sort of context, I’d be super-thrilled to see that.
Ray Fisher
Since 9/11, the Justice Department has been widely criticized for one particular tactic it uses in fighting the War on Terror: it detains suspicious persons for long periods of time and puts them under heavy questioning before they are ever even charged with a crime.
Annie Jacobsen
Those early Cyborg comics were very politically charged, and he was very aware of being a black superhero.
Ray Fisher
Working out, no matter what time of the night, rejuvenates me. At times, I don’t feel sleepy after a workout session, as I am all fresh and charged up, and I don’t mind compromising on my sleep.
Anita Hassanandani Reddy
Police arrested two kids yesterday, one was drinking battery acid, the other was eating fireworks. They charged one and let the other one off.
Tommy Cooper
It is extremely hard to bring a claim for compensation against the police or the Crown Prosecution Service, even when a person has been charged with an offence and later cleared.
Robert Rinder
Engineering undergraduates should not be charged fees. They should receive grants, not student loans, and the government will get the money back long-term from increased exports.
James Dyson
The unique problem for transgender women in prison is that our health and welfare are also the responsibility of those charged with overseeing us.
Chelsea Manning
It strains credulity to suggest that an agency charged with gathering intelligence affecting the national security does not have an ‘intelligence interest’ in drone strikes, even if that agency does not operate the drones itself.
Merrick Garland
I can never resist Ruritanian intrigue: I was once charged with the task of offering the Estonian throne to Prince Edward. Feeling like a Dumas Musketeer on a mission, I did so, but he turned it down.
Simon Sebag Montefiore
We’re charged by Congress with regulating financial institutions. We take that mission seriously. We are tough supervisors and regulators.
Janet Yellen
When I’m angry, when I’ve got something to fight for, I’m charged up.
Shannon Briggs
