Give Us Credit: How Muhammad Yunus’s Micro-Lending Revolution is Empowering Women from Bangladesh to Chicago
by Alex Counts
Counts heads up Grameen Foundation USA, the non-profit extension of The Grameen Bank – one of the first, large-scale successful microfinance banks based in Bangladesh. Counts shares the story of The Grameen Bank from its early inception in Bangladesh to where it is today. In parallel, he tells the story of an attempt of another NGO helping micro-entrepreneurial women in South Chicago with micro-loans.
