"Banker to the Poor is an autobiographical account of the founder of the Grameen Bank, Muhammad Yunus. This work is fundamental rethink on the economic relationship between the rich and the poor, their rights and obligations." "The Grameen Bank is founded on principles of trust and solidarity. Muhammad Yunus believes that the right to credit should be recognized as a fundamental human right because credit is the last hope left to those faced with absolute poverty. The unique and extraordinary methods he used to combat human despair is recounted here with humility and conviction. Yunus is familiar with both Eastern and Western cultures - on the failures and potential for good of industrial countries." "This book is an appeal for action: we must concentrate on promoting the will to survive and the courage to build in the first and most essential element of the economic cycle - Man." (jacquette)

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 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1983, Muhammad Yunus established Grameen, a bank devoted to providing the poorest of Bangladesh with miniscule loans. Based on the belief that credit is a basic human right, not the privilege of a few, Grameen Bank now provides over 2.5 billion dollars of micro-loans to more than two million families in rural Bangladesh. Ninety-four percent of Yunus's clients are women, and repayment rates are nearly 100 percent. It was an idea born on a day in 1976 when he loaned $27 from his own pocket to forty-two stool makers living in a tiny village. Banker to the Poor is Muhammad Yunus's memoir of how he changed his life to help the world's poor. In it he traces the journey that led him to rethink the economic relationship between rich and poor and recounts the challenges he and his colleagues faced in founding Grameen
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
