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

This book is about Muhammad Yunus
"Banker to the Poor: Micro-Lending and the Battle Against World Poverty" uncovers the revolutionary journey of Muhammad Yunus in transforming the lives of impoverished individuals in Bangladesh through the power of micro-lending. Published on June 1, 1999, this inspiring narrative delves into Yunus’s founding of the Grameen Bank, an institution committed to providing small loans to those unable to access conventional bank services. Ideal for adult education readers, this book not only explores economic justice but also emphasizes the profound impact of social entrepreneurship. Through personal stories of the men and women who benefited from these loans, Yunus’s work illustrates a powerful model of sustainable development that has ignited a global movement towards eradicating poverty through microfinance. Reflect on how a simple but revolutionary idea can change the world economy and empower the underprivileged. How might we apply Yunus's principles to tackle economic disparities in our own communities?
