Poverty is unnecessary  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) Long live Grameen Bank. Let the power of poor women prevail  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) My vision for the future? ... a world completely free from poverty.  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) Business money is limitless  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) Human beings are much bigger than just making money  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) Changes are products of intensive efforts  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) The fact that the poor are alive is clear proof of their ability  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) My vision for the future?... a world completely free from poverty  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) The only place where poverty should be is in museums  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) ... a culture that holds people back should and can be changed  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) The crisis is the price for the capitalist system  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) A university should not be an island where academics attain higher and higher levels of knowledge without sharing any of this knowledge with its neighbours  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) The poor themselves can create a poverty-free world. All we have to do is to free them from the chains that we have put around them!  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) There are cultural issues everywhere - in Bangladesh, Latin America, Africa, wherever you go. But somehow when we talk about cultural differences, we magnify those differences  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) Today, if you look at financial systems around the globe, more than half the population of the world - out of six billion people, more than three billion - do not qualify to take out a loan from a bank. This is a shame  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) There is the expression of selfishness and there is the expression of selflessness - but economists or theoreticians never touched that part. They said: ‘Go and become a philanthropist.’ I said, ‘No, I can do that in the business world, create a different kind of business - a business based on selflessness.’  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) Making money is a happiness. And that’s a great incentive. Making other people happy is a super-happiness  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) All human beings are very creative - full of potential, full of energy... So, money kind of allows them to express it... And if you’re successful, you can take more money. You can expand your capacity, reach next level of capacity, and so on  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) Capitalism has been interpreted as an exclusively profit-centric human engagement. Some have been saying to bring people and planet into the picture. This can be a good change, but it is still not fully operationalized. Are you putting people, planet and profit at the same level?  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) Grameen Bank was formed as an institution owned by its borrower members, who are poor women. Through its unique decision-making process, Grameen Bank has given millions of women the means to emerge from the shadows in a male-dominated society and to make something of themselves  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) I founded Grameen Bank to provide loans to those considered traditionally unbankable. Grameen Bank works with the poorest and often illiterate, providing uncollateralized micro-loans for tiny business enterprises by which they can lift themselves and their families out of poverty  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) The Grameen Bank Ordinance with amendments up to 2008 is a beautiful legal structure for the fulfillment of the ideals and objectives of the bank. Any change in this structure will be devastating for the bank  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) The new millennium began with a great global dream. World leaders gathered at the United Nations in 2000 and adopted, among others, a historic goal to reduce poverty by half by 2015. Never in human history had such a bold goal been adopted by the entire world in one voice, one that specified time and size  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) The profit orientation is only one orientation of a person. The same people who are interested in profit-making are also selfless. I am not saying that capitalist theory is wrong. I am saying that it has not been interpreted and practiced fully  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) We developed microfinance to fight loan sharks - I was telling people don’t go to loan sharks - not trying to take advantage and make money for myself. I would be a junior loan shark if I did... It is not a panacea  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) We have a list of human rights - right to food, right to shelter, right to health, right to education, many such items which are considered and accepted as bill of rights. These are to be insured to people. So all nations, all societies try to do that  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) What we need is to think strategically about development, analyzing a country’s potential role in its region and the world in search of opportunities for growth. Platforms like the Global Social Business Summit can facilitate the process on bringing about change  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) I believe that we can create a poverty-free world because poverty is not created by poor people. It has been created and sustained by the economic and social systems that we have designed for ourselves; the institutions and concepts that make up that system; the policies that we pursue  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) Some people think that poor people are lazy. Actually, it takes a lot of work to survive when you are dirt-poor  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes) My experience working in the Grameen Bank has given me faith; an unshakable faith in the creativity of human beings. It leads me to believe that humans are not born to suffer the misery of hunger and poverty. They suffer now as they did in the past because we turn our heads away from this issue  (Muhammad Yunus Quotes)
