The Price of a Dream: The Story of the Grameen Bank by David Bornstein

The Price of a Dream tells the remarkable story of the Grameen Bank, the groundbreaking village bank that has revolutionized the way people around the world fight poverty. The Banks model--providing collateral-free micro-loans for self-employment to millions of women villagers inBangladesh--has inspired and shaped the thinking of economists, policy makers, business people, development workers and a generation of social entrepreneurs. Both liberal and conservative policy circles have championed the Banks ability to transform the lives of its clients and help them escape thevicious cycle of deep economic hardship.Drawing upon interviews with villagers, development workers, economists, and the Banks founder Muhammad Yunus--a recipient of numerous humanitarian awards--the book shows how the Grameen Bank grew from an experiment in one village to an organization that lends billions of dollars in smallindividual loans.
