Describes the changes the Grameen Bank made. Interesting because it gives and overview of what the bank was like before and what it is now. But very, very in-depth and a little too repetitive. Also, since it is co-written by someone who works there it does not criticize very much. There must be problems, right?
Jennifer Kern
"This book captures very well the central message of Grameen - the poor always pay back... I hope this book will inspire readers to play an active role in creating a world free from poverty."
- Muhammad Yunus, Founder, Grameen Bank, and winner of the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize

An in-depth description/report of how the Grameen Bank and micro-lending started, works, and mainly, the changes incorporated in Grameen II. I got what I wanted out of it and skimmed some of it. But very interesting to hear the thinking involved.
