I found this interview of Mohammad Yunus of Grameen Bank. His idea to provide ‘micro loans’ to poor people to jumpstart their entrepreneurship truly is changing the world. In fact, Yunus won the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize for his work.
Here are some key quotes from the interview:
‘Women have a long-term vision, she wants to move up to something’
‘It’s not Grameen Bank came and told them to do that; it is in their hearts’
‘We developed a system which doesn’t need collateral, guarantee, legal’
‘We citizens, we individuals, are capable people addressing social issues’
The interview is a must-read for anyone who wants to change the world—via a profit or not-for-profit company.
