"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.

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 ( )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 80 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
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

Banker to the poor : the story of the Grameen Bank by Muhammad Yunus ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Muhammad Yunus set up the Grameen Bank in his home country of Bangladesh with a loan of just £17, to lend tiny amounts of money to the poorest of the poor - those to whom no ordinary bank would lend. Most of his customers - as they still are - were illiterate women, wanting to set up the smallest imaginable village enterprises. It was his conviction that this new system of 'micro-credit', lending even such small sums, would give such people the spark of initiative needed to pull themselves out of poverty. Today, Yunus's system of micro-credit is practised around the world in some 60 countries
