This coming Sunday the topic of the week is...
Muhammad Yunus had a dream. He wanted to help poor people and he found a way: microcredits. In the 70/80s he founded the Grameen Bank ("Village Bank") in Bangladesh so loans started to be given to entrepreneurs too poor to qualify for traditional bank loans. In 2006, Yunus and the Grameen Bank were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize "for their efforts through microcredit to create economic and social development from below". More than 94% of Grameen loans recipients are women. The poor are like a "bonsai tree", and they can do big things if they get access to the social business that holds potential to empower them to become self-sufficient. Is Yunus alone? Do people, young and old, have dreams? Why some people achieve their dreams while others not?
