REACHING OUT TO HELP THE POOR WITH A BANK?
I wrote an item (a feature story) about someone who started a bank for the poor in Bangladesh decades ago. A relative told me about the person in the 1990s.

Today the bank that Dr Muhammad Yunus started in 1983 as Grameen Bank (village bank) is the top bank in Bangladesh. Its model of lending people micro-loans is now used all over the world, including organisations in the western world. (More on this later.)
