The Story of The Grameen Bank
By Muhammad Yunus With Alias Jolis
With a Foreword by HRH The Prince Of Walves
Muhammad Yunus, winner of the Noble Peace Prize in 2006, set up the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh to lend tiny sums to the poorest of the poor, who were shunned by ordinary banks. The money would enable them to set up the smallest village enterprise and pull themselves out of poverty.
Today’s Yunus’s system of ‘micro-credit’ is practiced in some sixty countries, and his Grameen bank is a billion-pound business acknowledge by world leaders and the world bank as a fundamental weapon in the fight against poverty.
This book is Yunus’s own enthralling story: of how Bangladesh’s terrible 1974 famine underlined the need to enable its victims to grow more food; of overcoming scepticism in many governments and in traditional economic thinking; and of how micro-credit was extended into credit unions in the west.
