Interiview of Mohammad Yunus from Grameen Bank

Yunus is a Nobel Prize recipient and the author of the seminal book on micro finance
"Banker to the Poor." He was recently interviewed on CNN. You can see the interview here. Here are some key quotes from the interview:
  • “Women have a long-term vision, she wants to move up to something”
  • “It’s not Grameen Bank came and told them to do that; it is in their hearts”
  • “We developed a system which doesn’t need collateral, guarantee, legal”
  • “We citizens, we individuals, are capable people addressing social issues”
Inspiring stuff...
