‘bank had never lent money to an illiterate woman’

Normal logic would tell us that business should be profitable. Banks, for its business safety, check borrowers for its capacity to repay loans and as much as possible to have a collateral or guarantor.

Grameen Bank, Bangladesh defies this common sense and puts its faith in the ability and heart of the country’s poorest of the poor. A bank which goes out of its way to find needy people and help them stand up by letting them borrow small capitals.

Here is the story of the bank and that of Mohammad Yunus who come to realize that large problems are composite of a great number of simple problems and as such can be solved by simple people.

This is the lesson, the model, and the concurrent endeavor worthy of our real attention as people of our own nations and people for our world.
