Join us for a conversation about Micro Loans and Lending, and how this form of financing has helped people who normally wouldn’t be able to attain a traditional bank loan achieve their goals. We’ll meet the president of an organization who grants these loans in Third-World countries as well as in the U.S.

  1. I am reading Dr. Yunus’s great book, “Creating a world without poverty”, and an working on finding a workable connection between Microfinance, Social Business, Social Media and the Green Economy. I also think that the Grameen Bank and the Bank of America should create a synergistic relationship. I honestly think it would be as manna to both banks.

    Any possibility of such a collaboration between banks?

    All the best,

  2. Hi,

    I read a book in college in the 1980’s called “Small is Beautiful” by Ernst Shumacher…I think he was the pioneer in the micro business.

    Did he contribute to your project?


  3. What type of business can you do with 1500? this method might work in India but not in NC.
