really liked it
Read from June 21 to 26, 2012

Initially I thought this would be another "development book", but I was quite surprised. Not only is Yunus very market-orientated, but insist on Grameen Bank being a fully commercial.

It was very inspiring to read how easily to give the poorest of the poor a chance by merely giving them monetary credit, and to hear Yunus tell how they found dignity and self-reliance when given an opportunity. The poor do not need training or aid, they only need credit from a bank so they can pool themselves out of poverty.

I would recommend it to everybody.
