Banker to the poor [micro-lending and the battle against world poverty] by Muhammad Yunus( )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1983, Muhammad Yunus established Grameen, a bank devoted to providing the poorest of Bangladesh with miniscule loans. Believing that credit is a basic human right, not the privilege of a few, Yunus aimed to support that spark of personal initiative and enterprise by which the poor might lift themselves out of poverty forever. Grameen Bank now provides over 2.5 billion dollars of micro-loans to more than two million families in rural Bangladesh, with repayment rates at nearly 100 percent. In Banker to the Poor, Yunus traces the journey that led him to rethink the economic relationship between rich and poor and recounts the challenges he faced in founding Grameen. He provides wise, hopeful guidance for anyone who would like to join him in the burgeoning world movement of micro-lending to eradicate world poverty
Für eine Welt ohne Armut : die Autobiographie des Friedensnobelpreisträgers by Muhammad Yunus( Book )

5 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in German and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein Mann hat eine Vision und setzt sie in die Tat um - gegen den Widerstand internationaler Entwicklungshilfe-Organisationen und mächtiger Banken. Muhammad Yunus, Wirtschaftsprofessor aus Bangladesch, einem der ärmsten Länder der Erde, hatte vor dreißig Jahren die revolutionäre Idee, Kleinstkredite - oft nicht mehr als 25 Dollar - an die Ärmsten der Armen zu vergeben und ihnen damit zu helfen, ihren Lebensunterhalt zu sichern. Die Kreditnehmer - vorwiegend Frauen - hatten nur eine Sicherheit zu bieten: ihre Ehre. Was für Banker ein Ding der Unmöglichkeit war, funktionierte: Alle vergebenen Kredite wurden in vollem Umfang zurückgezahlt. Heute ist die von Yunus gegründete Grameen-Bank weltberühmt. Sein Konzept wurde in mehr als hundert Staaten übernommen und hat bereits mehr als 6,6 Millionen Menschen in Entwicklungsländern oder Krisengebieten geholfen. Die packende Autobiographie von Muhammad Yunus, dem "Bankier der Armen", der 2006 für sein Lebenswerk mit dem Friedensnobelpreis ausgezeichnet wurde, beweist, dass es eine erfolgreiche Strategie gegen Hunger und Armut in der Welt gibt

Creating a world without poverty : social business and the future of capitalism by Muhammad Yunus( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in Spanish and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize outlines his vision for a new business model that combines the power of free markets with the quest for a more humane world--and he tells the inspiring stories of companies that are doing this work today. In the last two decades, free markets have swept the globe, bringing with them enormous potential for positive change. But traditional capitalism cannot solve problems like inequality and poverty, because it is hampered by a narrow view of human nature in which people are one-dimensional beings concerned only with profit. In fact, human beings have many other drives and passions, including the spiritual, the social, and the altruistic. Welcome to the world of social business, where the creative vision of the entrepreneur is applied to today's most serious problems: feeding the poor, housing the homeless, healing the sick, and protecting the planet.--From publisher description
