Muhammad Yunus is that rare thing a bona fide visionary His dream is the total eradication of poverty from the world In 1983 against the advice of banking and government officials Yunus established Grameen a bank devoted to providing the poorest of Bangladesh with minuscule loans Grameen Bank based on the belief that credit is a basic human right not the privilege of a fortunate few now provides over 25 billion dollars of micro loans to than two million families in rural Bangladesh Ninety four percent of Yunus's clients are women and repayment rates are near 100 percent Around the world micro lending.

Banker to the Poor Micro Lending and the Battle Against World Poverty

T it and ask how we could have allowed such a terrible thing to go on for so long The definitive history of micro credit direct from the man that conceived of it Banker to the Poor is necessary and inspirational reading for anyone interested in economics public policy philanthropy social history and business Muhammad Yunus was born in Bangladesh and earned his PhD in economics in the United States at Vanderbilt University where he was deeply influenced by the civil rights movement He still lives in Bangladesh and travels widely around the world on behalf of Grameen Bank and the concept of micro credit. I read a 20 pages report written by a group of MBA students from Columbia Business School and it was as concise succinctly put as this 200 pages book on Grameen Bankmicrocredit The importance of open access to resources is indispensable Hence I agree with Muhammad Yunus that the current financial system has inevitably and is successful in sidelining the neediest which eventually gives birth to the need to establish alternative institutions that work on social benefits as the underlying guidance in providing their services to the people The establishment of the bank and many other replicators might seem to be successful in helping these people to break the poverty cycle however exploitative forces still persist within the parameter Labeling these people as the untapped resources and knowing how profitable they all are once tapped lure the profiteers in Conseuently from this we can see that the establishment itself has become counterproductive not all however It makes me think and feel extremely appalled by the greediness and the very fact on how destructive human beings can actually be Besides I too agree with the fact that Grameen Bank might be one of the solutions to poverty not THE ultimate solution for it taking into account that it could not make a dent on the national or even worldwide poverty crisis despite the fact that the program has a widespread reach Though it is noble in its very own values I was disappointed with the insufficient details from the borrowers accounts on how microcredit has served and helped them to combat poverty The mere statistically glorious achievements attained by Grameen Bank with 90% repayment rate XX% borrowers managed to cross over the poverty line and whatnots fail to uench the thirst I have in knowing what does microcredit really mean to the impoverished Yunus stated that everybody should be seen as potential entrepreneurs and access to credit is vital for the people to realize this Yet I hardly can see how successful the poor people are in transforming themselves from nobodies into entrepreneurs thanks to the painfully brief victorious stories written by Yunus I was itching with curiosity to know the real detailed stories from these people s perspectives How do they make do with the microcredit being lent to them What lead them to engage in the business that they are doing Is training really not necessary for these people Besides there are things that Yunus had failed to mention in this book and one of those was the reasoning behind the creation of Grameen bank II which I had come to know when I read the report I mention above the operational crisis due to the 1995 boycott movement 1998 floods and moral hazard that the classic Grameen model had inflicted upon the borrowers In regard to this I think that this book has been sugarcoated with unaddressed crises and issues deepen my doubt about how successful Grameen Bank is beyond the statistical measures on social ground that is

    Muhammad Yunus and I are best friends Oops I had to double check and I'd spelled Muhammad wrong Sorry buddyAnyways me and Mr Yunus are best friends because once he spoke at the library in Salt Lake City and when I heard about it I drove down and sat shyly on the back row of the auditorium and clapped really hard for him Then after it was all over I saw him just kind of hanging out all alone on the stage and thought Maybe I could
