    TRANSCRIPT: McNamara: "We have broadened our geographical scope -- broadened it so we can of more service to developing countries, and, in particular, to the more small and very poor countries. Between the years 1969 and 1970 we loaned to 60 countries, compared to 34 in the previous period. And, further, in that same two-year period, we loaned to 14 countries, including Chad, Dahomey, Indonesia -- which had received no loans or credits during the previous five years. We began to work in the field of population planning. Admittedly much more slowly, and much more modestly, than the urgency of the problem demands. But we began to work in the field of population planning at the specific request of countries such as India, Indonesia, Jamaica and Tunisia."
