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 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Muhammad Yunus is that rare thing: a bona fide visionary. His dream is the total eradication of poverty from the world. In 1983, against the advice of banking and government officials, Yunus established Grameen, a bank devoted to providing the poorest of Bangladesh with minuscule loans. Grameen Bank, based on the belief that credit is a basic human right, not the privilege of a fortunate few, 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 near 100 percent. Around the world, micro-lending programs inspired by Grameen are blossoming, with more than three hundred programs established in the United States alone. [This book is the author's] memoir of how he decided to change his life in order to help the world's poor. In it he traces the intellectual and spiritual journey that led him to fundamentally rethink the economic relationship between rich and poor, and the challenges he and his colleagues faced in founding Grameen. He also provides wise, hopeful guidance for anyone who would like to join him in "putting homelessness and destitution in a museum so that one day our children will visit it and ask how we could have allowed such a terrible thing to go on for so long." The definitive history of micro-credit direct from the man that conceived of it, Banker to the Poor is necessary and inspirational reading for anyone interested in economics, public policy, philanthropy, social history, and business. -http://www.booksinprint.com

El banquero de los pobres : los microcréditos y la batalla contra la pobreza en el mundo by Muhammad Yunus ( Book )
7 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in Spanish and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Muhammad Yunus tiene un sueño: la erradicación total de la pobreza. En 1983, en contra de los consejos de la banca y de su gobierno, el profesor Yunus fundó Grameen, un banco dedicado a suministrar préstamos minúsculos a las personas más pobres de Bangla Desh. Su objetivo no era simplemente ayudar a que los pobres sobrevivieran, sino generar un mecanismo de ignición de la iniciativa y el espíritu emprendedor que les ayudara a salir por sí mismos de la pobreza. Su solución a la pobreza en el mundo, fundada sobre la creencia de que el crédito es un derecho humano fundamental, es de una brillante simplicidad: fomentar una serie de principios financieros sensatos y la gente se ayudará a sí misma. Llevadas a la práctica, las teorías de Yunus funcionan. El índice de reembolso de los préstamos es prácticamente del 100%. Por todo el mundo están surgiendo nuevos programas de microcrédito siguiendo su modelo.--Desde la descripción de la editorial

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 41 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
