title
Banker to the Poor
fullDescription

In 1983, Muhammad Yunus established Grameen, a bank devoted to providing the poorest citizens of Bangladesh with miniscule loans. Believing that credit is a basic human right, not the privilege of a few, Yunus aimed to support that spark of personal initiative and enterprise by which the poor might lift themselves out of poverty forever. Grameen Bank now provides over 2.5 billion dollars of micro-loans to more than two million families in rural Bangladesh, with repayment rates at nearly 100 percent.

In Banker to the Poor, Yunus traces the journey that led him to rethink the economic relationship between rich and poor and recounts the challenges he faced in founding Grameen. He provides wise, hopeful guidance for anyone who would like to join him in the burgeoning world movement of micro-lending to eradicate world poverty.

      • content: This incredible account of Muhammad Yunus and his creation of the Grameen Bank, which provides microcredit loans for the poor, is a wonderful yet heartbreaking memoir, expertly realized by narrator Ray Porter. This story is so powerful that it needs no embellishment, and Porter knows exactly how to read it with a touching and firm delivery that involves listeners instead of preaching to them. There are lessons to be found at every point in the book, namely that credit is a basic human right; that, when given a chance, even the poorest of the poor will repay their loans; and that the human spirit is alive and well. Porter delivers the material as if it were his own. A greater compliment there could not be for audiobook narration. L.B.
