Dr. Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Prize winner and the founder of Grameen Bank movement, was invited to this talk @ Google last month:

They now have 20 branches in 11 American cities.

This is their web site:


(Grameen) means village, and in Bangladesh they only operate in villages to serve the poor, not in big cities.

Their banking model is the reverse of traditional banking:

- They serve the poor, not the rich

- They don't take collateral like normal banks (in Bangladesh they don't even have lawyers)

- Their objective is not to maximize profit: in fact they are not interested in profit

A very interesting initiative, with many positive impacts on improving health & education for the poor...

Think Win-Win for a better world for all...
